that's what we need in washington, d.c. we need someone with a servant's heart that has a backbone that isn't going to focus polls and focus groups. it's going to focus on the american people to keep them safe and secure. i ask for your vote next saturday. ( applause ) >> moderator: thank you, governor. and now, senator marco rubio. >> thank you, thank you for watching tonight. this is a difficult time in our country. our economy is flat. it's not creating the jobs it once did. people struggle living paycheck to paycheck. our culture is in trouble. wrong is now considered right and right is considered wrong, and all the things that once held our families together are now under constant assault. and around the world, marc reputation is in decline. our allies don't trust us. our adversaries don't fear us. iran captures our sailors and parades them before the world on video. these are difficult times, but 2016 can be a turning point. that's why i'm running for president. that's why i'm here today to ask you for your vote. if y
