    Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is continuing his campaign in New Hampshire Wednesday.

    Opening a jam-packed day of campaigning, he told reporters he would "try to earn the support" Paul's supporters, though the two Republicans have stark differences on foreign policy.

    "What I respect about Rand, he's a true and real believer in what he stands for," Rubio said after a campaign event in Bow.

    Rubio also seemed open to picking off Trump supporters. He's offered only measured criticism of the billionaire, even when presented with opportunities to unleash. Asked by a disability advocate about Trump's mockery of a New York Times reporter with a disability, Rubio went relatively easy.

    "I think we all_obviously not just disagree with it but find it distasteful. I think he's been called out for that repeatedly and I think people see it for what it is," He said.

    Rubio's chief target is Cruz, whose strength with evangelical voters won't carry him as far in New Hampshire.

    Rubio will be holding town halls throughout the day, including one in Laconia and another in Dover.
