Struggling GOP presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio could pull off a "surprising" win in his home state of Florida on Tuesday, according to Cuban community activist Felix Ismael Rodriguez.

In an interview on Newsmax TV's "Battleground Florida: Fight for the Primary" on Saturday, Rodriguez, who participated in the capture of Che Guevara with the CIA, tells hosts J.D. Hayworth and John Bachman the 2016 GOP primary race has been something "we have never seen anything like" before.

"He might surprise people," Rodriguez says of Rubio, despite his lag in polling averages going into Florida's winner-take-all primary contest.

"He has come from behind many times and he might pull a surprises here too."

"In this community, most (voters) are in favor of him," Rodriguez added, predicting Rubio would do well from early voters in the state. "My granddaughter, it's the first time she's voting. She just registered Republican… and she just voted for Marco Rubio."

Rodriguez said he's amazed that two Cuban Americans are running for the White House, Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

"It's a hell of a situation, really, an interesting situation," he said. "It's amazing that we can have two descendants from Cuban origin running for president of the United States and being … pretty much ahead within the other people that participated. So we are very proud of that. I'm very proud of this country that gives the opportunity to everybody to be able to have that opportunity that many other countries don't have."
