Finish the Job in NY-23

Today’s developments in New York’s 23rd Congressional District should send an encouraging message to conservatives everywhere. It is not only right and necessary to stand up for our principles, it is also an appealing strategy to Americans yearning for less government and more fiscal restraint in Washington.

While there are still four grueling days of work left, it is clear candidates willing to stand up for conservative beliefs will not face a lonely journey on the campaign trail.

For conservatives who still don’t believe we can be true to our principles and win elections, I hope NY-23 serves as a wake-up call. It’s time for them to join their fellow Republicans on the front lines to deliver a victory on Tuesday.

 — Marco Rubio is a Republican running for the U.S. Senate in Florida.
