    Rubio spox: Senator looks forward to helping Trump shred Iran deal Senior Obama administration officials in their final days in office are seeking to cover up key details of the Iran nuclear deal from Congress, according to documents and sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon about continued efforts by the White House to block formal investigations into secret diplomacy with Tehran that resulted in a $1.7 billion cash payment by the United States. As leading members of Congress petition the Obama administration for answers about what many describe as a $1.7 billion “ransom” payment to Iran, Obama administration...

    MIAMI — Senator Marco Rubio, who stumbled badly in a bid for the Republican presidential nomination and then jumped back into the race for his Senate seat, was re-elected on Tuesday to a second term.

    A dangerous, erratic, con man with the worst spray tan ever. That's how Sen. Marco Rubio described Donald Trump when they were both seeking the Republican presidential nomination. Now that Trump is the nominee and Rubio is running for re-election, his tone is different. He is no longer criticizing Trump, but he isn't exactly gushing praise. Democrats are trying to make him look like a hypocrite for backing the man he previously said shouldn't have access to nuclear weapon codes, and for jumping back into the Senate race after he said he wouldn't. "Sen. Rubio is actually the real con...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio reversed course Wednesday and said he will seek re-election to the Senate, telling Fox News: “I changed my mind.” The decision, widely expected among his Florida Republican colleagues, follows repeated claims during the GOP presidential primary race that he would not run again for Senate. Rubio for months had spoken about his frustrations with the Senate, in explaining his original decision to run for the presidency only – and defending himself against criticism for missed votes. But he told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Wednesday while he’s “frustrated” with the Senate, it is “also...

    Glenn Beck used to talk about harboring respect for Marco Rubio, but now that Rubio has basically thrown in with Donald Trump, Beck tore into Rubio yesterday over what he deemed as a betrayal. Rubio has indicated in various Twitter spats over the past week that he’s behind Trump by default because there are no other good options to take down Hillary Clinton. But that’s not good enough for Beck. He wrote, “Can you have any credibility when you said one thing on the campaign trail and then the opposite after. Were you lying to us then or now Marco?”

    In February 2013, Senator Marco Rubio let me sit in on the politics course he taught part time at Florida International University. He knew I was writing a cover story about him for Time magazine, but he still gave his students a master class in self-promotion in my presence, explaining the machinations he had used to persuade his colleagues to elect him speaker of the Florida House of Representatives: “You raise money for them. You befriend them. You make sure your kids are friends with their kids. And then you cut the best deal you can.” He also candidly described...

    “I want to congratulate Donald Trump on a big victory in Florida.” With those words, Marco Rubio opened his speech to supporters in Miami Tuesday night after learning Trump won the GOP primary in Rubio’s hometown state. “While it is not God’s plan that I be President in 2016 or maybe ever and while today while today my campaign is suspended, the fact that I’ve even come this far is event of how special America truly is and all the reason more while we must do all that we can to ensure that this nation remains a special place.

    FULL TITLE: Marco Rubio Campaign in Disarray as Questions Forcibly Surface About His Viability as Presidential Candidate ----- The presidential campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is in disarray as the first-term Florida Senator’s window of opportunity for the White House seems to be slamming shut. Questions about his supposed viability as a presidential candidate forcefully surface, even inside his own inner circle, amid horrendous performances by the establishment-backed candidate. CNN’s Jamie Gangel and Tal Kolpan reported late Monday: A battle is being waged within Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s campaign about whether he should even remain in the Republican presidential...

    Last night was brutal for Rubio. He has no path forward and now he cannot risk the career ending humiliation of being beat in his home state. The writing is on the wall. Either tonight, after PR or latest Tuesday after MS and MI, Rubio will have no choice but to withdraw. He's done. So. Strategy. If Rubio endorses Cruz and pledges his delegates to Cruz, it's a brand new game. Unspoken but plainly in view is the idea that Rubio will be Cruz' VP choice. Ordinarily, this would be a lack of balance on a ticket to be avoided....

    Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, who has been dogged by questions over his personal finances, released portions of his tax returns Saturday, but the documents don't reveal details like which tax breaks he claimed or how much he gave to charity. -snip- Rubio’s release is aimed at increasing the pressure on GOP front-runner Donald Trump to produce his own returns, but the fact that Rubio only released partial returns may undermine his case. Meanwhile, Sen. Ted Cruz, who has also been demanding Trump produce tax documents, missed his own self-imposed deadline of Friday for providing his returns.

    Republican Marco Rubio's presidential run has drawn more money from Wall Street donors than any other candidate, according to a Reuters review of campaign finance disclosures, shoring up his position as his party's establishment alternative to front-runner Donald Trump. The U.S. senator from Florida has received more than $4 million from the employees of banks and investment firms like Bank of America Corp (BAC.N), Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) and Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) since launching his bid for the presidency last year, according to the analysis of individual donations totaling more than $200 each.

    Saturday's Republican primary in South Carolina was not quite the train wreck for the not-Trump portion of the party that seemed likely after New Hampshire's multi-candidate pileup. Boosted by Nikki Haley's endorsement, Marco Rubio basically saved his campaign with a second-place finish, while Jeb Bush finished far enough back that dropping out became the only honorable option. But of course Kasich is still in the race, and showing no signs of departing. I haven't ever written about his path to the nomination, mostly because I've never thought he had one. But then again this year has defied reasonable expectations. The...

    Rubio inherits establishment support but is on a narrow path to stop Trump By Sean Sullivan February 22 at 2:20 PM LAS VEGAS — Mainstream Republican donors and elected officials are swiftly flocking to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) amid a growing sense that is he is the last best chance to prevent Donald Trump from running away with the Republican nomination. But Rubio’s path remains narrow and perilous. He has yet to win a state, and a raft of major March 1 contests known as “Super Tuesday” offers few obvious chances for him to do so. And if Trump keeps...
