Marco Rubio headed to the Villages on April 13



The Buzz is Marco Rubio will appear on the Sean Hannity Show, televised from the Villages in Central Florida on April 13.

The visit could help Rubio address two issues that cropped up during Sunday's debate with Charlie Crist: His comments about raising the retirement age for Social Security and apparent dissatisfaction among Tea Partiers in the sprawling, influential community.

Rubio qualified his remarks to say that the retirement age adjustment would not affect people over 55. But it's a sensitive issue nonetheless, one Crist could exploit, even though his response to the problem -- curbing fraud and abuse -- would have little effect on the looming insolvency of Social Security.
