Marco Rubio

Florida’s freshman Sen. Marco Rubio, a Latino and Tea Party favorite who represents a key swing state, has the makings of a triple threat. But according to a poll released by the National Journal on April 3, support for a Romney-Rubio ticket is cooling, in part because he’s not been tested nationally. In addition, there are fears that such a choice would be viewed cynically, and unflattering comparisons would be made between Romney and the party’s 2008 nominee, Sen. John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin.
