The Line That Earned Marco Rubio Roaring Applause, Standing Ovation at CPAC

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio received a standing ovation at CPAC Saturday after delivering a not-so-subtle jab at Donald Trump, accusing him of trying to “hijack” the conservative movement.

Speaking about young Americans, Rubio said, “they won’t have a chance if the conservative movement is hijacked by someone who is not a conservative.”

The thunderous applause went on for over 20 seconds.
