He is the latest Republican to jump into the race. Rubio, 43, called Hillary Clinton "yes- terday" trying to claim the mantra of a new gen- eration of political leaders. However, he shares this mantra with both U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas and Rand Paul, R-Kentucky. When it comes to the all important Latino voting bloc, he shares that with both Cruz and former Gov. Jeb Bush, who is yet to announce himself. Rubio called for a "new American century" and calling the 2016 election as a "generational choice." Obviously, a slam at both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.
