Marco Rubio's new ad seeks to appeal to evangelicals in Iowa



In a play for the evangelical vote in Iowa, Marco Rubio's latest ad spotlights his faith. "Our goal is eternity, the ability to live alongside our Creator for all time. To accept the free gift of salvation offered to us by Jesus Christ," Rubio says in the ad.

Rubio's had an interesting "faith journey," as an aide once put it. He is Roman Catholic but attended the Mormon Church while a boy in Las Vegas. As an adult he has also attended an evangelical church with his wife.
