Marco Rubio

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida)
Since 2010, the junior Senator from Florida has been stoking the flames of a presidential run, nearly upstaging the GOP presidential nominee at the Republican National Convention. On all sides, Senator Rubio has had to fend off criticism–that his parents are not exiles from Fidel Castro but immigrated before the Revolution. He also has been under fire from the Tea Party and other hardline conservatives who denounce Rubio’s support of the Senate’s comprehensive immigration proposal. Amid the harsh national spotlight, will Rubio make a bid in 2016?
