Press Release - Check Out What It's Like to be a Marco Rubio Volunteer in South Carolina

February 19, 2016


Hi ya'll, my name is Nicole! I've been volunteering with Marco in South Carolina since September.


I'm from Columbia, S.C, home of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks!


I'm a teacher at a local elementary school here in Columbia, SC. When I'm not volunteering or working I enjoy reading a good book, playing with my three dogs, and talking to literally anyone and everyone about Marco Rubio.


A typical day on the trail varies but is always fun!


Before I even get out of bed I check Facebook and Twitter for any new Marco Rubio articles and updates.


Then I stock up with plenty of coffee and Diet Coke for a long but fun day. I go teach all day and then head down to our state headquarters in downtown Columbia.

From there, I go door knocking, place yard signs, or make phone calls.


On special days we get to go to see Marco at his local events. I never get tired of seeing him in person and listening to him speak!


Volunteering involves a lot of hard work, time from family and friends, and lots of talking.

I can honestly say I can't imagine doing anything different with my time for the past 5 months; us volunteers have all truly become a family.


I love campaigning and I encourage everyone to get involved — just go here to sign up to volunteer in your state, and go here to make calls from home!

I promise the experience is worth everything and more. I hope to see you on the trail!
