Northwestern College Republican forum Rubio

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio speaks during a forum on Oct. 30 at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa.

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is enjoying an upswing in the field of 15 Republican candidates. Rubio, a U.S. senator from Florida, campaigned in Siouxland last weekend after a national debate in which many thought he bested Jeb Bush during an exchange on Rubio's many absences from the Senate.

He's received a bump in many polls since the Oct. 28 debate, and on Friday Rubio got the endorsement of South Dakota's sole U.S. House member, Republican Kristi Noem. A few days ago, Rubio also got the endorsements of three senators, Cory Gardner, Jim Risch and Steve Daines.

Noem is also a fan.

In a statement, Noem, who first won a congressional seat in 2010, said, "Marco Rubio represents the kind of next-generation conservative leader that puts our party in the best position to win back the White House next year. Marco stands out from his competitors in his ability to articulate a conservative vision for what kind of country we can become in this new American century. As the son of a bartender and a maid, he possesses a personal understanding of the challenges facing hardworking taxpayers in South Dakota and across the country."
