ROGERS(KFSM)-- Republican Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio was in Rogers Saturday night (Feb. 27) and spoke to thousands of people at a local church.

Rubio held a campaign rally at the Global Outreach Center at Immanuel Baptist Church at 9:30 p.m. The event was free and open to the public.

Within minutes of beginning the rally, Rubio quickly turned to talking about opponent Donald Trump.

"Why do you make all your ties and suits and clothes you sell in China and in Mexico?" Rubio said. "Why don't you make them in the United States?"

Rubio even talked about Donald Trump's appearance.

"He needs to be worried about his lines around his eyes from this horrible spray tan," Rubio said. "Today he said he wanted to sue me, he's going to sue me, he should sue whoever did that to his face, that's who he should sue."

Rubio also talked about his support of the first amendment with religious practice, as well as the right to own a gun. The Florida senator was joined by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, who recently endorsed Rubio for the Republican candidacy, as well as state senator Bart Hester.
