At a pre-Super Bowl rally Sunday in Manchester, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio brushed off criticism from his GOP opponents that he lacks experience and seldom strays from his standard stump speech.

Rubio was unfazed, saying he believes the country faces fundamental choices about its character and future. He sounded a familiar inspirational tone about his family's immigrant story that they wrote after leaving Cuba for Miami in 1956.

Rubio said, "This isn't just a country I was born in, it gave me opportunities I never would have had."

There was no impromptu questions for Rubio as he later walked past reporters.

No worries said the loneliest man in New England, Dolphins fan David Low. He even wore an aqua jersey in Patriots territory. Now that is courage!  

On a serious note, Low said of Rubio, "I will agree there is a different kind of experience you get as governor, and a different kind you get as a senator."

New Hampshire voters will decide on Tuesday whether Rubio's personal and political narrative is enough to keep his momentum going on the long campaign trail ahead.
