In an exclusive interview for the upcoming cover story in TIME magazine, Senator Marco Rubio says the Republican Party and conservatism have a lot to offer Americans of Hispanic descent:

"I think the free enterprise systems speaks to their economic hopes and dreams. I think our defense of traditional family values speaks to their concerns that by coming to this country they found prosperity, and in the process lost their soul. Some families are worried about the fact that they brought their children here and their children are better off in every measurable economic way, and yet maybe the culture threatens the unity of the family, and the strengths of the family that they once had in their home country, and they wish they could have both. And I think the Republican party has a lot to offer. I think Conservatism has a lot to offer Hispanics -- Americans of Hispanic descent. And I do look forward to making that case to them in Spanish. I do look forward to making that case to them without the filter of people telling them what we believe."
