About Marco Rubio, U.S. Senator

Marco Antonio Rubio (born May 28, 1971) is the junior United States Senator from the state of Florida, serving since January 2011, and is a candidate for United States President in the 2016 election. He previously served as Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives.

Rubio is a Cuban American native of Miami. He graduated from the University of Florida and the University of Miami School of Law. In the late 1990s, he served as a City Commissioner for West Miami and was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2000, representing the 111th House district. He was elected Speaker of the Florida House in September 2005.

Rubio announced a run for U.S. Senate in May 2009, after incumbent Republican Mel Martínez announced that he would not seek reelection. Initially trailing by double-digits against the incumbent Republican Governor Charlie Crist, Rubio eventually surpassed him in polling for the Republican nomination. Crist then opted instead to run with no party affiliation, and Rubio went on to win the Republican nomination, and won the general election in November 2010 with 49 percent of the vote.

On April 13, 2015, Rubio announced that he would forgo seeking reelection to the senate to run for President in the 2016 election.
