Mitt Romney to stump with Rubio in Tampaby Dara Kam | April 17th, 2010
Mitt Romney will stump with Marco Rubio in Tampa on Monday, Rubio’s U.S. Senate campaign announced today.
Former Florida House Speaker Rubio is likely trying to capitalize on GOP outrage over his primary opponent Gov. Charlie Crist’s veto of SB 6, the contentious teacher merit pay bill.
A recent poll showed Romney an early GOP presidential favorite in Florida in the 2012 election.
Rubio’s garnered the endorsements of both Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, whom Rubio threw his support behind in the 2008 presidential campaign.
Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC is also giving the maximum $5,000 contribution to Rubio, according to his campaign.
