Marco Rubio Officially Announces 2016 Presidential Bid

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio officially announced his intention to run for president of the United States at an event in Miami's Freedom Tower Monday evening. Rubio first broke the news in a phone call to his top donors earlier on Monday, in which he said that he is "uniquely qualified" to lead the country. At the event, Rubio built his speech around the themes of American exceptionalism and a "new American century," stressing a broken system in need of change that would involve tax reform, more accessible education and a shift in foreign policy. He also touched on immigration, touting his Cuban parents' immigrant past and their humble beginnings. At one point he quoted a Spanish phrase from his father that translates to: "In this country, you will be able to achieve all the things we could not."
