Rubio Portrays GOP Race As Three-Man Contest

Part of Marco Rubio’s strategy in the New Hampshire Republican primary race is to present himself as the only real alternative to the two anti-establishment front-runners, Breitbart News reported.

“Either Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio’s going to be the Republican nominee, so if you don’t want Cruz and you don’t want Trump, it’s time to vote for Marco Rubio,” Alex Conant, the Florida senator’s communications director, told Fox News after his candidate placed third in the Iowa caucuses Monday night.

“We just put Marco front and center,” Conant said. “He worked really hard in the last couple of days to try and meet as many voters as he could, and talked to them about his ideas for the future.” Rubio has made “hundreds of thousands of voter contacts” during the past few weeks, according to the aide.

Conant argued that “we’re the only campaign that is organized in all 50 states around the country,” adding: “We don’t expect this is going to end anytime soon; we’re ready for the long haul.” He said the campaign’s goal is to place in the “top tier” in Tuesday’s election in the Granite State, finishing in at least third place.

Recent polls of New Hampshire Republicans show Trump hanging on to a lead of about 20 percentage points. However, the billionaire businessman also led in Iowa until Cruz surpassed him in the final week of the contest.
