Election Day: Rubio Greeted by Protesters Dressed as Robots at Polling Site

Kerry Picket of The Daily Caller is on the ground in New Hampshire covering the first-in-the-nation primary. She tells PJ Media that things are heating up in snowy New Hampshire. Two protesters waited for Florida Senator Marco Rubio at a polling site, dressed up as robots. More protesters and supporters awaited Rubio as he stepped off his campaign bus.

Writes Picket, “A near stampede of campaign supporters, protesters and reporters greeted Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at a polling location as the senator walked off his campaign bus Tuesday morning.”

Protesters also screamed “robot” at Rubio as he walked.

And then things escalated.

“As the crowd crushed up around Rubio, one Rubio protester, dressed as a robot, found himself in a shoving contest with an Rubio supporter holding an extra large banner,” according to Picket.
