Marco Rubio goes all in for evangelical voters with new ad to air in Iowa

The Marco Rubio for President campaign has released a new television ad that will begin airing in Iowa this weekend.

The ad, called, “Faith,” shows the Florida Senator explicitly refer to how his Christianity affects his daily life.

“Our goal is eternity, the ability to live alongside our Creator for all time,” he begins in the ad. “To accept the free gift of salvation offered to us by Jesus Christ. The struggle on a daily basis as a Christian is to remind ourselves of this. The purpose of our life is to cooperate with God’s plan.”

“Iowa’s evangelical voters should see this ad positively,” writes David Brody with the Christian Broadcasting Network. “By talking straight into the camera and invoking the name of Jesus Christ, Rubio comes across as authentic and the ad doesn’t look schmaltzy at all.”
