Marco Rubio gaining evangelical support in Iowa

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Donald Trump might be getting the attention in this presidential race but other candidates are slowly moving up on the frontrunner. One of them is Marco Rubio who’s starting to make a strong pitch for evangelicals, specifically in Iowa.

So far, Rubio’s best moments have come on the debate stage where he has shown off both his poise and intellect. He’s combining those moments with a pro-America personal story on the campaign trail.

“This is not just the nation that I was born in,” Rubio told a crowd in Grinnell, Iowa. “This is the country that literally changed the history of my family. My parents were not born into a rich family. They were both born into poor families on the island of Cuba.”

Those two elements have led to a candidate on the rise.
