Where’s Weyermuller? Hearing from Rubio surrogate Senator Cory Gardner




By Mark Weyermuller –

The Marco Rubio campaign was active in Chicago with a rally Monday night at Fairways, a golf-themed tavern in Chicago's Lincoln Park. Rubio was in South Carolina, but newly-elected Colorado Senator Cory Gardner was in town talking up his pick for president.

Sen. Gardner was the first United  States Senator to endorse Marco. His passion is incredibly motivating as he shares Marco's desire to turn the 21st century into a new American century.

Gardner said, "Marco understands the struggles of everyday Americans because he's lived them, and is the only candidate with detailed policies to tackle the issues." Attendees left eager to help Team Marco IL.

Gardner won a decisive victory in Colorado with 57% of the vote. The other senate seat is held by a democrat currently up in this cycle. Gardner is confident that seat will flip to the Republicans if the right candidate is found. Colorado does not have their primary until June 2016.


The event was organized by Christopher Grozev, a local financial advisor and delegate for Rubio in the 5th Congressional district. He is also the Young Professionals chairman for Marco in Chicago and is active in the Chicago GOP.  Grozev has traveled to Iowa and New Hampshire in recent weeks to work on the Rubio campaign.

The South Carolina Republican Primary is this Saturday, February 16, 2016. We await The Nevada Caucus on November 23, Super Tuesday primaries on March 1,  and Illinois on March 15, 2016.

The next debate is Thursday, March 23, 2016 in Houston, Texas, sponsored by CNN. Then two more in Detroit on March 3 and Florida on March 10. The race continues to get exciting with many twists and turns.
