Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio was in New Hampshire Tuesday to endorse Republican Scott Brown in the race for U.S. Senate.

Speaking with Brown at an event in Derry that focused on foreign policy, Rubio says re-electing Democrat Jeanne Shaheen would be disastrous.

“Your current United State Senator, if she’s reelected, God forbid, the first vote she will take is to re-elect Harry Reid as the majority leader, someone who uses the United States Senate as a platform to run interference for the failed foreign policy of this president.”

Rubio is thought of as one of several Republicans weighing a presidential run in 2016, though he made no mention of his plans Tuesday.

Another of those possible candidates – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie – will make another visit to the Granite State Friday to stump for Republican gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein.

This will be Christie’s fourth trip to New Hampshire in support of Havenstein.
