The Hill reports:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), two potential 2016 presidential candidates, gave speeches Tuesday night, laying out visions of a GOP focused on upward mobility.
The two GOP stars spoke at the Jack Kemp Foundation’s Leadership Award Dinner — Rubio was this year’s honoree, while Ryan, last year’s award winner, delivered the keynote address.
“I'll see you at the reunion dinner, table for two. You know any good diners in New Hampshire or Iowa?” Ryan joked to Rubio during his speech. “I’m sure the press won’t read too much into that.”
Rubio shot back later with a smile, saying that he appreciated the offer, but “will not stand by and watch the people of South Carolina ignored.”
Both men focused on economic mobility during their remarks, channeling former Rep. Jack Kemp’s (R-N.Y.) lifelong focus on how free markets could help the poor.
