Rubio received applause as he spoke of preserving the American Dream.

"They won't be able to touch the First Amendment. They won't be able to touch the Second Amendment. They won't be able to touch our important constitutional rights. But here's what we must do — we must pass amendments limiting the size and scope of the federal government," Rubio said as he addressed the crowd.

“Rubio supports small businesses and companies who create jobs and hire people of diverse backgrounds, which our company does," Long said in a statement. "We look forward to future visits."
