Floridas Sen. Marco Rubio in NH May 9
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, viewed as a potential 2016 presidential candidate and a key GOP player on Capitol Hill, has scheduled a May appearance in the Granite State.
A senior Republican strategist said Rubio has confirmed a May 9 appearance at the Rockingham County Republican Committee’s annual “Freedom Founders” Dinner, to be held at the Wentworth-By-The-Sea hotel in New Castle.
Rubio’s visit will come less than a month after several other potential 2016 Republican candidates for President are slated to be in the state for a major event hosted by Americans for Prosperity and Citizens United. The “Freedom Summit” on April 12 will attract former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas, as well as Donald Trump and former House speaker Newt Gingrich.
