Kansas 2016: Grassroots Leaders Endorse Marco Rubio

As Marco rallies across Kansas1, the Rubio campaign announced growing support across the state. Today, additional state legislators, a team of grassroots supporters, and a group of Kansas college Republican presidents announced that will be caucusing for Marco tomorrow. This announcement follows the release of a list of 27 Kansas elected officials2 that are supporting Marco.

Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce says its about expanding the American dream:

I am thrilled that so many influential elected officials, supporters, and young people across Kansas are rallying behind Marco ahead of tomorrow s caucuses.

Marco has the ability to inspire the next generation of conservatives and bring more people to the party as he shares his plan to expand the American Dream for future generations, and that s why he is the Republican that Democrats don t want to run against this fall.

Rep. Erin Davis praised Marco s grasp of national security issues:

Kansans understand that these are serious times and we need a serious leader as Commander-in-Chief. Marco is a proven conservative leader who understands the struggles of working families and the national security challenges we face as a nation, and he will make a wonderful President.

    I love your idea for positive media. We definitely need it. I stopped watching the news and reading newspapers in high school because it was creating more fear than optimism in me. You are right as far as the statistics of crime not being as bad as we think it is. I think it would be awesome to have a channel to turn to where you know there will be only positive images and scenes.Go for it! What will this chn#9el&n03a;s schedule look like? Will there be positive news?I believe in you my friend. Follow your dream!
