The Florida senator was asked a combined question about God and veterans. 

“God has blessed us,” Rubio said. “He’s blessed the Republican Party with some very good candidates. The Democrats can’t even find one.”

The line was met with a huge cheer in the crowd in Cleveland. 

Rubio went on to tout reform of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

“When I’m president, we are going to have a VA that cares more about our veterans than about the bureaucrats who work at the VA,” he said. 

Rubio spent much of the debate emphasizing his theme of moving toward the future, portraying Clinton as the candidate of the past.
