VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Hundreds from across Hampton Roads made way to the Virginia Beach Convention Center on Sunday night to see Florida Senator and presidential candidate Marco Rubio.
Senator Rubio's stop is just two days away from Super Tuesday and days after a rowdy CNN Republican Debate.
He brought some of that same heat against front-runner Donald Trump to Virginia Beach.
"I would prefer to run in a race where the people are debating ideas, but when the people debating have no ideas..." says Senator Rubio. If we nominate Donald Trump as the front-runner, we will lose this election."
Senator Rubio promised voters a very different path than President Obama, especially when it comes to healthcare.
He also focused on protecting and honoring those who serve, his humbling up-bringing, and restoring the American Dream.
"The American Dream is about focusing on happiness," he says. "If you elect me as president I will ensure that we can do that every single day for our children."
Some voters tell NewsChannel 3, they left his rally feeling inspired.
"He hit all of the points I wanted to hear," says Anthony Austin, a Rubio supporter. "Keeping America safe, getting a better economy, getting the current president out of the office and making sure Hillary Clinton doesn't get into the office."
Heading into Super Tuesday, a recent CNU poll shows Rubio with the highest approval rating among Virginia voters.
"Hillary Clinton does not want to run against me, but I can't wait to run against her," says Senator Rubio.
However, he's still polling behind Donald Trump in the Republican Primary.
"It was definitely a great turnout and hopefully that will carry into Tuesday," says Tyce Moore, a Rubio supporter.
