Marco Rubio

Last week, two congressional Republicans introduced a concrete plan for a concept that is gaining ground in the GOP: paid family leave. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rep. Ann Wagner of Missouri unveiled the Economic Security for New Parents Act, one of the first pieces of Republican-backed family leave legislation. The bill would allow […]

Amidst of the ongoing battle against the surveillance state that we have chronicled with the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (FEPA), the College Transparency Act (CTA), and the regulatory gutting of the family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), there is yet another data bill that is now rearing its head. Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), […]

Two days after Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) came under fire for — gasp! — tweeting Bible verses, the Florida Senator has once again taken to Twitter to spread the Word of God: “He who answers before listening-that is his folly and his shame” Proverbs 18:13 — Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) May 18, 2017 Rubio’s tweet from […]

With just a few hours now separating us from the first election results, here are the five states I’m watching most closely tonight: 1.) North Carolina Obviously, North Carolina is a key swing state in the presidential race, which is likely to be very close, but I’m even more interested in the results of the […]

Far left Democrats, like Sen. Chuck Schumer, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and Sen. Tim Kaine, are cynically trying to exploit the developing Zika crisis both to advance their pro-abortion ideology and to bash Republicans. But Sen. Marco Rubio is fiercely defending life in spite of pressure from abortion ideologues. Pregnant women infected with Zika can pass the […]

There’s so much to talk about. So much. Where do I start? Ted Cruz Last night, Ted Cruz gave the most memorable political speech in recent memory. He took the stage to a standing ovation . . . and he left to an overwhelming chorus of boos. What happened? Watch below: The key moment comes […]

Marco Rubio is back. Senator Rubio (R-Fla.) publicly announced his intention to run for reelection to the U.S. Senate this morning, saying that he’s “frustrated by what’s happening here in the Senate.”  Though his approval numbers were driven down during the months of the 2016 GOP presidential primary, Rubio is still considered to be the front […]

Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee, an onslaught of negative ads are, undoubtedly, on the horizon. Trump is, by now, no stranger to negative campaigning, having already faced numerous attacks from his former Republican primary rivals, as well as high profile GOP leaders like Mitt Romney. Now it’s Democrats’ turn. Politico reports […]

Wow. Marco Rubio is kind of awesome. Last night, the former presidential candidate got on Twitter and unleashed sarcastic fury on the mainstream media. First, he criticized two Washington Post stories that used anonymous sources: Funny to read about unnamed “people close” to me who claim to know my thinking on future plans.They just make […]

It’s a time-honored tradition. Candidate runs for president. Candidate loses. Candidate’s campaign staff blames everyone and everything in an anonymous tell-all piece to the media. It happens every cycle — should’a, would’a, could’a. But this piece at CNN is still worth a read. Apparently there was a real push to put Marco Rubio on Ted Cruz’s […]

Ted Cruz’s announcement last week of his pick for Vice President, Carly Fiorina, in conjunction with Trump’s likely win in Indiana this evening, will undoubtedly spur new talk of potential VP picks for Donald Trump. Enter Marco Rubio, who has already been mentioned by Trump confidante Roger Stone as a potential pick for Trump’s VP. Rubio would […]

Michael Barone has a column on today where he points out the steep hill that Donald Trump still must climb to win the nomination outright. We both agreed about the similarities with the Northeastern states, but he pointed out something that I missed — that turn out in these heavily blue states was just […]

The number one rule in politics should be: “The first person to mention rape loses.” We saw this play out in Missouri back in 2012, where Todd Akin blew a layup U.S. Senate race. And if Donald Trump has his way, we will see the same thing blow up Republicans’ chances at the White House […]

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio may not have gotten along so well back when they were both vying for the GOP nomination. However, since Rubio suspended his campaign last month, the public relationship between the two has drastically improved. And this week, the good vibes hit an all-time high. First, during an interview on Tuesday […]

Sen. Marco Rubio may have suspended his campaign over three weeks ago, but he has not given up the fight to defeat Donald Trump just yet. In addition to calling Ted Cruz “the only conservative left in the race” in a thank you call to supporters, offering Cruz implicit support if not an explicit endorsement, […]

With the 2016 presidential primaries beginning to wind down, speculation is growing as to who the GOP nominee will eventually pick as a running mate. But current and recent candidates are doing their best to emphasize their lack of interest. Earlier this week, both John Kasich and Ted Cruz were asked about the possibility of […]

During a conference call thanking his Minnesota supporters, Marco Rubio did not endorse a candidate but he did say this, according to local press: He didn’t endorse either Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the two other remaining candidates. But Rubio praised Cruz as ‘the only conservative left in the race.’ Thank […]

Political analysts disagree on whether it is more likely Donald Trump will arrive at the Republican convention in July with a 1,237 delegate majority or whether no candidate will have the majority and the convention will be contested. The Dallas Morning News reports that for Trump to get 1,237, he needs to win 60 percent of […]

Only 13 percent of Marco Rubio voters said they would switch to Donald Trump, according to a new poll, while 47 percent of them will back Ted Cruz.  However, John Kasich is siphoning away a potentially significant share of ex-Rubio supporters from Cruz at 27 percent. The decision to divide the anti-Trump vote will nominate Trump. Maggie […]

March 15th or Super Tuesday 3 (I originally called it Super Tuesday 2, but apparently March 8th was “super” as well) was a good night for Donald Trump. He won every state that he led the polls in. He wracked up lots of delegates and took one step closer to the GOP nomination for president. […]
