Snapshots From Iowa: Selfies And Booze At A Marco Rubio Rally

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio held a rally in Urbandale, Iowa on Saturday night before Monday's caucus.

Rubio gave his standard speech about how he's a candidate who can bring the GOP together and defeat the Democratic nominee. He said he would immediately repeal President Barack Obama's executive orders and replace Obamacare with something else. Rubio said he would lower taxes, keep ISIS out of America and reform education.

We followed the journey of rally-goers on the ground at the Urbandale Ramada Conference Center.

Rubio said it was the biggest crowd he'd seen all week in Iowa.


A mass of press lined up in the back of the room to get the best shot.


Some campaign staffers wore snazzy Rubio quarter-zip sweaters.


Rubio stans came with their own signs…


…and t-shirts.


One man has been getting yarmulkes signed by each candidate in a campaign to “Weed Out Hate.”


Not all political statements are partisan.


There was a bar set up outside the event room, and drinks were allowed inside.


After Rubio spoke, he stuck around to shake hands and pose for pictures. People flocked to him.


People in the crowd hopped up on chairs to get a better shot.


One man checked to see if he got the shot in front of a giant Iowa flag, in case you forgot where you were for a second.


Nailed the group pic with Rubio!


Those who got to the front left with trophies in the form of signed posters.


As people left, tables were set up outside where you could sign up to volunteer or commit to caucus for Rubio.
