Just one day after Hillary Clinton announced her 2016 campaign for President of the United States, another hat has landed in the ring.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio told top donors on Monday morning that he too — along with Rand Paul and Ted Cruz — will be seeking the Republican nomination.

Rubio says his goal is to rebrand the GOP as friendly to the lower tax brackets as they have been to the higher ones. He stated:
"I feel uniquely qualified to not just make that argument, but to outline the policies that we need to have in order to achieve it."
He also took a moment to get the mud-slinging started by throwing some shade at Hillary! He said:
"The Republican Party, for the first time in a long time, has a chance in this election to be the party of the future. Just yesterday, we heard from a leader from yesterday who wants to take us back to yesterday, but I feel that this country has always been about tomorrow."
That's a bold statement considering Hillary is trying to drag the country into the present by becoming the first female Commander-In-Chief!
We can't wait to see her response!
