CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is pointing to the video game "Minecraft" as an example of how to prepare young people for the new economy.

Rubio says the U.S. economy is going through a "massive transformation" and regulations need to be rolled back or avoided to promote innovation.
