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.
