Fresh from a GOP debate in which national security issues were dominant, Florida Senator Marco Rubio assured the crowd at a Manchester banquet hall that on his watch American military forces would never have to undertake a fair fight. They would always be better equipped, better trained, and have better intelligence to guide them.
"You know what all of this will mean. it will mean the world will not be perfect, but it will be safer, and it will be better. When America leads, the world is a safer and better place, and when it doesn't the world is chaotic."
Rubio pledged to increase military spending, and to work to reinstate the collection of bulk phone data by the national security agency. Rubio returns to New Hampshire next week for a campaign swing focused on the North Country.
