Watch: Rubio Reacts to Third-Place Iowa Finish


Monday after coming in a close third place in the Iowa caucuses, right behind his rival Donald Trump, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)spoke about what he called “the moment they said would never happen.”

He continued,  “For months they told us we had no chance. For months they told us that because we offered optimism in a time of anger we had no chance. For months they told us that because we didn’t have the right endorsements, the right political connections, we had no chance. But tonight here in Iowa, the people of this great state have sent a very clear message.”

He added  “Tonight we’ve taken the first step, an important step towards winning this election. If I’m the nominee — and I will be the nominee thanks to what you’ve just done in this great state — when I’m our nominee we’re going to unify this party and we’re going to unify the conservative movement. When I’m our nominee we’re going to grow the conservative movement.”
