Tampa, Fla. • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who will introduce Mitt Romney tonight, touted the Republican presidential candidate on Thursday as perfectly qualified to turn the country back on the right course.
Addressing Utah delegates, Rubio offered a preview of his speech, pitching the party's standard bearer as the fix-it man with a plan who has the credentials President Barack Obama lacks.
"One of the greatest successes Mitt Romney has had is the Salt Lake Olympics," Rubio said. "He came in and turned it around. Well, America is in even more trouble than those Olympics were in and we need someone to come in and help us turn it around by applying the principles of our founders ... and he's going to do that."
