Ryan, Rubio plot party future as 2016 talk starts
Pair speaks at GOP dinner
Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio, two potential 2016 presidential candidates, are laying out pathways for their Republican Party and nudging a party still reeling from its loss to President Barack Obama.
Ryan, the GOP's vice presidential nominee in 2012 and a congressman from Wisconsin, is telling Republicans they can't look at the electorate as "our voters" and "their voters." Rubio, a senator from Florida, is ready to outline his views for the party going forward during a later set of remarks.
The pair is appearing at a dinner hosted by the foundation of Republicans' 1996 vice presidential nominee, the late Jack Kemp. While the dinner was held in honor of Kemp's legacy, Ryan and Rubio both had a chance to test out potential themes for a 2016 campaign.
