Sen. Marco Rubio reported for jury duty at a Miami-Dade County courthouse but was not called to serve on a panel.
A Rubio spokesman says the case the Florida Republican was impaneled for Wednesday did not go to trial. That meant Rubio and the other potential jurors were all excused.
Rubio spent a little over three hours at the Richard Gerstein Justice Building. Spokesman Alex Conant says Rubio will be back in Washington in time for Senate business Thursday morning.
Rubio’s family residence is in West Miami, where he began his political career as a city commissioner. Rubio, who is an attorney, was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010.
