RENO (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio tried to reach out to regular Americans during a stop at a Reno gated community on Friday.

The Florida senator told some 130 GOP activists that polls show the public believes the GOP cares more about the wealthy and the party needs an agenda for struggling Americans if it wants to defeat Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016.

He branded Clinton’s ideas as “status quo relics of the past,” and said he represents a new generation of leaders open to new solutions.

The Florida senator gave a 25-minute talk at the home of supporter Kim Bacchus.

Earlier Friday, Rubio tried to sound futuristic at a round table with technology entrepreneurs in Las Vegas.

It was the second of a two-day swing through Nevada for Rubio.
