Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) got a standing ovation when he broke the news House Speaker John Boehner’s resignation to the packed ballroom at the 2015 Values Voter Summit in Washington.
“Just a few moments ago, Speaker Boehner announced he is resigning,” Rubio started, and before he could finish the sentence, the ballroom erupted.
“I’m not here to today bash anyone, but the time has come to turn the page and allow new leadership in this country,” Rubio said. “This extends to the White House and the Presidency as well.”
