This Marco Rubio Senate Speech Is Going Viral And Could Be A Game Changer

Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign for president has been a bit underwhelming.

Rubio (along with the rest of the mainstream party favorites) has been overlooked for the bluster and excitement of outsider candidates like Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson.

Polling indicates that Rubio is a top-tier candidate, with the Huffington Post Pollster (an index that averages 157 polls from 29 pollsters) saying that he is currently in 5th place out of 16 candidates.

But for Rubio supporters, there is hope. Their man is a bit of a comeback kid- having upset the then presumed unbeatable Charlie Crist in the 2010 Republican primary for senate.

One way that Rubio could position himself is as someone who has a firm grasp of foreign policy matters and a strong vision for the future.

Well, a video widely circulating on social media may help the junior senator from the Sunshine state accomplish that goal.

The video is of a Senate floor speech Rubio gave last week before a key vote on President Obama’s deal nuclear agreement with Iran.

So far, it has been watched over 800,000 times on Facebook and shared nearly 25,000 times.

It will be interesting to see how Rubio approaches the upcoming CNN debate and whether he tries to dominate foreign policy questions.
