A rising star in the Republican Party and an outspoken leader on the national stage in American government, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)
was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010. When he launched his campaign in 2009, Rubio was considered a long shot and was predicted to lose big. He prevailed on a pledge to stand up to Washington’s reckless spending and its assault on the free enterprise system. Today, Senator Rubio is working not only on behalf of Florida but also for all Americans to restore fiscal discipline and give job creators more certainty and confidence to expand existing businesses or open new businesses. A highly recognized figure in American politics today, Senator Rubio has appeared in/on most major media outlets. His committee assignments currently include Commerce, Science and Transportation; Foreign Relations; Intelligence; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Senator Rubio and his wife, Jeanette, have four young children and live in West Miami.
