In an effort to highlight Sen. Marco Rubio’s generational appeal, the campaign has launched a new group of Millennials who are declaring their support for the Florida Senator.

“Sometimes our generation is derided as self-centered, unpatriotic, or unambitious,” Digital Grassroots Director Cabot Phillips writes in a statement. “I know we’re none of those things — and that’s exactly why Marco is the right candidate for us.”

A new ad launched by the campaign features dozens of young people who pledge their support for “Team Marco.”

“Ever feel like the voices of young people are neglected by both the Republican and Democratic parties? That you don’t like the outdated, discredited ideas Democrats bring to the table, but feel like some Republicans can be out of touch, too?” asks Phillips? “I get it — and that’s why I’m on Team Marco.”
