Marco Rubio, a junior U.S. senator representing the state of Florida, is far from the frontrunner position in the current race for presidential candidacy. However, his efforts have recently accomplished what no other candidate has—not even fellow Republican Donald Trump!
“Team Marco,” the official Twitter account for Rubio’s campaign staff, posted about the development on Monday afternoon. The team announced that the campaign had “just accomplished what no other campaign has,” before providing a link to the exciting development. But what is it?
Well, while it might not seem that interesting to those that don’t follow politics, it’s a pretty big deal in terms of the campaign. What Marco Rubio has done, before Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and anyone else seeking to be made a party candidate for President, is announce his (planned) leadership for all 50 U.S. states. This group of conservative leaders that supports the young candidate was finalized with the inclusion of Senator Mack “Bodi” White, representing Louisiana. The full list is available here.

Speaking on his addition to “Team Marco,” Senator White said, “After nearly eight years of President Obama in the White House, many working families in Louisiana are rightfully fed up with politics today. But Marco Rubio is the next generation leader we can count on to unite the party and stick to his conservative principles.”
This wasn’t Marco Rubio’s only accomplishment of the day, as his team also posted a letter from a grateful supporter. The person, whose name is redacted for the sake of their privacy, thanks Rubio for his efforts to curtail the “Obamacare” bailout, saving the writer money, adding, “The only thing worse than not being able to afford health insurance is getting fined for not being able to afford health insurance.” If he keeps making strides as he has been doing today, this isn’t the last grateful letter Marco Rubio will receive on the campaign trail!
