Perry dines with New Hampshire Republicans in Texas

Washington (CNN) - Rick Perry, the Texas governor and erstwhile Republican presidential contender, played host on Tuesday night to more than a dozen well-connected New Hampshire politicos – his latest effort to woo GOP power brokers as he plots a repeat bid for the White House in 2016.

The confab, held over dinner at the governor’s mansion in Austin, was organized by Republican operative Mike Dennehy, Perry’s man-on-the-ground in New Hampshire, and included several business leaders and Republican activists from the nation’s first primary state.

Rubio: No ‘eject button’ if he runs for president

(CNN) – Marco Rubio said that if someone wants to be president, they should fully commit to just that, adding that candidates shouldn't try to hold their congressional seats while pursuing the White House.

The Florida Republican said in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC that, should he decide to launch a 2016 campaign, he won't run simultaneously for re-election for his seat in the U.S. Senate.

'The 20th century is gone': Rubio makes apparent dig at Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire speech

(CNN) – Sen. Marco Rubio used his first visit this election cycle to New Hampshire, a key primary state, to take apparent shots at a potential 2016 presidential opponent - Hillary Clinton.

The Floridian was speaking Friday night to fellow Republicans at the Granite State’s “Freedom Founders” dinner, an annual event held by the Rockingham County Republican Committee.

Although not referring to Clinton by name, Rubio said: “They're threatening to nominate someone now who wants to take us to the past, to an era that is gone and is never coming back. The 20th century is gone. We live in the 21st century, a time of extraordinary challenges but also extraordinary opportunities. And that's where our party must step in.”
