Marco Rubio, super surrogate for Mitt Romney

in Uncategorized by

Republicans don’t have a Bill Clinton, but they do have Florida’s junior senator.

Marco Rubio is scheduled to do a primetime cable tour tonight, including CNN’s Erin Burnett, FOX ‘s Sean Hannity, and CNBC’s Larry Kudlow.

At Romney’s big rally in West Chester Friday night, nearly 100 top GOP surrogates took the stage before fanning out to swing states in the final days. Many were introduced by loudspeaker. No one from outside Ohio received louder cheers. It was Rubio’s 70th campaign event for the Romney campaign, and it came at the end of a 12-hour campaign swing through Ohio with Josh Mandel.

Rubio has visited every key swing state, including a 1,000-person rally last Thursday in Philadelphia. He’s also campaigned with or raised money for Republican Senate candidates in Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio, Nebraska, Nevada, Florida and Virginia. Notably, much of this activity happened after he was passed over for VP.
