Rubio looks to NH to peg himself as a Republican for all

LACONIA, N.H. (AP) -
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is using every bit of momentum his campaign received from the Iowa caucuses to show New Hampshire voters that he -- and not his competition -- is the Republican for all Americans.
Rubio describes caucus winner Ted Cruz as chronically "calculating" and calls New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie a sore loser.
And he points to the failure of others to pull in higher numbers as testament to their inability to lead.
But the Florida senator has been going easy on billionaire Donald Trump, who edged him for a second-place finish in Monday's caucuses. Instead, Rubio appears to be biding his time, quietly courting his rivals' potential supporters.
