A few nuggets from Marco Rubio's book



The publisher of Sen. Marco Rubio's book, due out in October, provided the Miami Herald with a few nuggets:

1) When his father was 18, he took part in an ill-fated military plot to overthrow Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo.
2) When Marco was 8 years old and living in Las Vegas, the Rubio family attended a Mormon church for a few years.
3) To loosen things up on the day of debates, Rubio and his aides would watch clips from the movie "Spinal Tap" during debate prep.

"An American Son is confidential until publication, so we're not sharing too many details," Adrian Zackheim, Sentinel's president and publisher said in a written statement. "But I can tell you there's a lot that people don't know about Senator Rubio and his family and will find very interesting in the book."
