If Facebook decided elections, it's U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio

Marco Rubio is the self-styled king of Facebook.

The U.S. Senate candidate has surpassed 100,000 "friends" on the social network site, rounding out a campaign to exceed the Democratic National Committee. He's trouncing rivals Charlie Crist (26,603) and Kendrick Meek (17,309) and Jeff Greene (424).

"With his grassroots momentum surging, Rubio currently has more Facebook friends that any other 2010 U.S. Senate candidate," spokesman Alex Burgos boasts.
