Buzz caught up with Marco Rubio in Pinellas County at a Christian Coalition meeting this
morning that drew more than 200 people. We chatted briefly about term limits, including illegal immigrants in the Census, releasing his own party credit card records, and the Delmar Johnson contract scandal that has shaken the Republican Party of Florida. "It was a dark period in the party in terms of what's gone on over the last couple years," Rubio said. "The next chairman of the party should come in and fully understand mistakes that have been made in the past and that would involve a full audit ooking at how expenditures have been made in the past and make sure that going forward people are confident when they give money to the Republican party it's going towards good things."
