Florida Senator Marco Rubio has 48 hours to rally as many supports he can before the Iowa Caucuses on Monday.

“This election is not just about a choice between two political parties, and that's what I want to talk to you about today,” said Rubio as he spoke to hundreds of people in Council Bluffs on his trek across Iowa Saturday.

He talked about the importance of having a strong republican candidate to go up against the democratic one.

“I think people want to win, and they know we not only give them a conservative choice, but a conservative that can win, a conservative that can bear Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, we cannot lose this election, we cannot afford another four years like the last,” said Rubio. 

Those who come out to support Rubio are confident he will win the candidacy spot.

“America is angry, America is scared, America is terribly disappointed, that anger is at different things, with different people, but as this thing goes one, and they take a sober look, I think their eye will gaze upon Rubio,” said Jim Wilson who follows Rubio’s campaign around the country.

“He can unite the part which is unique of the top three,” said Wilson.

Rubio said he realizes there are a lot of people still trying to make up their minds, but he is confident that his camping will come through on Monday .

“It’s really important that people come out and caucus especially people that will caucus for me because our nation's future is at stake here,” said Rubio.

Rubio’s numbers have been climbing the last few weeks, but he still stands third in the Iowa polls going into Monday.

“It's why I am here today to ask you to caucus for me on Monday night, if I am our nominee, we are going to win,” said Rubio.

Rubio will have a 30 minute TV special air Saturday and Sunday across Iowa.
