Marco Rubio Candidate Profile [Opinion]
Marco Rubio was born May 28, 1971 in Miami, Florida. The son of Cuban immigrants, Marco Rubio was instilled from a young age with the principles of faith in God, hard work, and unwavering commitment. Growing up first in Nevada where his father worked as a bartender and his mother as a housekeeper, Rubio eventually moved with his family to Florida in 1985 at the age of fourteen. In 1993 he graduated from the University of Florida and three years later received his law degree from the University Of Miami School Of Law.
In 1999, Senator Rubio won his first ever election to a seat in the Florida House of Representatives, where he would work for many years, serving the people of Florida. Rubio would fight for conservative values in Florida before eventually becoming the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. In 2009, Marco Rubio announced that he was running for the United States Senate. Campaigning on a platform of conservative solutions to immigration, job growth, and more, Rubio won his campaign and was officially sworn in as a United States Senator in 2011. Once in the Senate, Rubio fought for many years, as he did in Florida, to help small businesses, protect the second amendment, and serve the people of the United States. These fights were rarely easy but Senator Rubio never forgot the importance of hard work that his parents had instilled in him so many years ago.
Now, Senator Rubio is ready for the next chapter of service in his career as President of the United States. Still campaigning on his common sense conservative solutions he has pledged to secure our border with Mexico, grow the middle class, and stop the progression of ISIS across the Middle East. As President, Marco Rubio will take his work ethic, along with conservative values and a forward thinking vision, to the White House so that together we can create this New American Century .
