We’ve sort of known all along, but the official announcement is out. Last night, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio (R-Miami) told Univision that he was running for the Republican nomination to succeed Mel Martinez in the US Senate. He is expected to make a formal announcement today via his website.
Of course, Rubio’s news sets up a titanic clash between he and Gov. Charlie Crist, who is also expected to announce as early as today, for the Republican nomination.
