Betting on Marco Rubio jumping to attorney general race



So I tweeted (adamsmithtimes) earlier today about recently betting a prominent Florida politician that Pokerchips Marco Rubio would NOT jump from his senate campaign into a campaign for attorney general. The other guy was/is convinced that Rubio would ultimately succomb to intense pressure from Republicans eager for a strong candidate for AG.

Via twitter, Rubio said I made the safe bet. Too safe: "Adam, you know I am anti-gambling but this is one bet you should have wagered more than a beer on!"
