Despite their animosity in the Republican presidential primaries, Donald Trump wants Marco Rubio to run for a second term in the Senate.
Despite the bad blood between them during the presidential primaries, Marco Rubio said he is more than willing to help Donald Trump’s campaign and will go to the GOP convention in Cleveland this summer.
With a month left to change his mind, Marco Rubio is facing more pressure to run for a second term in the Senate.
Rubio had been pretty clear during his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination that he did not plan to run for another term in the Senate. But Republicans are increasingly nervous about losing control of the Senate in November as GOP senators in blue states--Mark Kirk of Illinois, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania--look vulnerable.
Jeb Bush will come around and back him, Donald Trump told a crowd in California on Wednesday. Unlike most of Trump’s others dispatched rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Bush hasn’t endorsed the presumptive nominee. Rick Santorum was the latest former rival to throw his support behind Trump, endorsing him earlier this week.
Even while he is enjoying a taste of the national spotlight, Gus Bilirakis has one of the easier assignments of any Florida congressional representative this year.
Curt Clawson’s surprise announcement that he would not run for another term has set off a mad dash to replace him. Clawson did not do anyone any favors in his timing as potential candidates have until June 24 to get in the race. So far, Chauncey Goss and Francis Rooney have jumped in the Republican primary while Matt Caldwell and Paige Kreegel, who ran twice before, are contemplating entering the field.
Florida voters remain open to supporting a proposed state constitutional amendment on medical marijuana and back the idea of a law for transgender individuals using “bathrooms that correspond to their gender at birth rather than their gender identity,” a new poll shows.
Hillary Clinton has a slight lead over Donald Trump in Florida, a new poll finds--and adding Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush to the ticket won’t help Republicans flip the Sunshine State.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are running close in Florida which looks poised to remain the largest swing state in presidential elections, a new poll shows.
CBS News released a poll over the weekend showing Clinton at 43 percent and Trump right behind her at 42 percent. When Bernie Sanders replaces Clinton as the Democratic nominee, he ties Trump at 44 percent apiece.
Bernie Sanders is going after Debbie Wasserman Schultz, endorsing her primary opponent and saying he would not keep her in charge of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) if elected president.
