Report: Rubio a candidate for 2016 Republican nomination

Some of you may recall that for a while now, I've been saying that I'd find a Marco Rubio candidacy for the Republican nomination for President very exciting. Now, reports ABC News, it looks like it's going to happen (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
Leading the effort to raise the $50 million or more he’ll need to run in the Republican primaries will be Anna Rogers, currently the finance director for American Crossroads, the conservative group started by Karl Rove that raised more than $200 million to help elect Republicans over the past two elections.
Rogers will begin working at Rubio’s political action committee on February 1 and would become the finance director of Rubio’s presidential campaign.
Rubio, 43, will gather on Friday and Saturday at the Delano Hotel in Miami with 300 supporters and major donors to his Reclaim America PAC to discuss his political future.
Aides expect Rubio will make a final decision in the comings weeks, but his schedule for the next month already looks more like the schedule of a presidential candidate than a senator.
ABC News has learned Rubio plans to skip all votes in the Senate next week and instead take a campaign fundraising swing through California with events in Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, Rancho Sante Fe and Costa Mesa. He also plans fundraising stops in Texas and Chicago.
Rubio has also scheduled a book tour that will take him to all the early primary states. A senior aide to the Florida senator tells ABC News Rubio’s book tour will include stops in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and Nevada. The first stop is tentatively scheduled for February 13 in Des Moines.
Here's wishing Marco Rubio all the success in the world. If you need someone to work on your campaign among American ex-pats in Israel (there are lots of us), please call. Promise to repeal FATCA and you'll get lots of votes here.

Shabbat Shalom everyone.

With all due respect, Marco Rubio is the republican equivalent of Obama. One term senator,and no experience to run anything with the exception of his mouth.

Carl, I am seriously thinking of voting for Rubio. At first I was not, but he has become more and more worthy of actually being president.

What frightens me is that a number of people have said that they fear that Obama will call in the miliary and have them keep him for another 4 years, G-d forbid. At first I was laughing, but now? I am VERY worried. I dream of Obama being put into solitary in Gitmo...he is doing his best to slose it, as he fears it!

At this point in time I do not trust Rubio. He ran for the senate as being against the legalization of illegal immigrants and solidifying the border. But once in the senate he joined hands with other senators to legalize those who he said he would not legalize.

On small matters opinions can change without consequence or when the facts change opinions need to change. But the was neither small nor wherein the facts changed.
