Rubio: ‘We have won the battle of the ideas’ — now get out the voteby George Bennett | October 30th, 2010
LAKELAND — Republican Senate nominee Marco Rubio began the final Saturday of the campaign urging about 150 supporters who packed into a GOP call center here to ignore polls forecasting big Republican gains and work hard through election day.
“We’ve won the battle of the ideas. We’ve won the battle of public policy. We won that weeks ago,” Rubio said. “You know how you know we won it? Because our opponents stopped talking about those things. They’re not bragging about Obamacare anymore. They’re not campaigning on how well they think the stimulus worked.”
He added: “We have won the battle of the ideas. Now we have to win the battle of the vote, which means turnout. That’s what this is about at this point. I don’t care how far up we are in the polls…People have made up their minds. The only difference between the winners and losers now is who can get their people to vote.”
Rubio has stops in Tampa, Pinellas Park and Pasco County on his schedule today.
