MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - A rising star of the Republican party told supporters that Wisconsin has done a good job of developing leaders in recent years. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, of Florida, spoke to a standing-room-only crowd at a Milwaukee campaign center Thursday. He named U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Congress Paul Ryan, who is now running for vice president. Rubio urged people in the crowd to vote early, then work to get their family and friends to cast their ballots. He says the ideas supported by Democrats to improve the economy have failed everywhere they’ve ever been tried. Rubio says the U.S. also needs a reformed tax code, energy independence and leaders have to lower the national debt.
