Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio of Florida's warning that America is at risk of losing its special place in human history has become a central campaign theme that taps into the anti-Washington frustrations of the tea party movement and others, according to a palmbeachpost.com report.

Rubio says his Nov. 2 election against Democrat Kendrick Meek and independent Charlie Crist is about more than just a Senate seat.

"This race is not your traditional race," the boyish, charismatic Rubio told about 60 supporters who crammed into a back room at Duffy's Sports Grill in Boynton Beach last week. "It is a referendum on our identity. This race forces us to answer a very simple question: Do we want our country to continue to be exceptional, or are we prepared for it to become just like everybody else?"
