Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told a crowd of potential voters in New Hampshire that he’d like to see the U.S. be a global leader in the production of renewable energy.
“I want us to lead the world in everything,” Rubio said. “Let’s be number one in wind. Let’s be number one in solar. Let’s be number one in biofuels, number one in renewables, number one in energy efficiency. Let’s lead in all of these things.”
Rubio said he supports an all-of-the-above energy portfolio. “Our job is to create an even playing field in our taxes and our regulations,” Rubio added. “The private sector will take care of the rest. I believe that if we do that, we are going to lead the world in all of these energy resources.”
New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary is February 9, 2016.
