BIRMINGHAM – Yellowhammer News held a forum at Samford University’s Wright Center with Republican Presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio. Rubio took full advantage of the stage to gain new voters as Sen. Ted Cruz, who was originally scheduled to attend the forum with Rubio, dropped out mere few days before the event.
Rubio said if he’s elected, he’d like to focus on student education, foreign affairs and immigration.
Many who saw Rubio said they now see a whole new side of the candidate.
“I wish that the rest of America could have heard what he shared today,” said Chris Blazer.
During his speech, he touched on his family’s history, of how his parents both worked at a hotel to help provide the life he has today.
