RNC is Rubio central

Rubio kicks off a convention media blitz on Sunday with Face the Nation and will be on Fox that night. On Monday, he'll appear on Andrea Mitchell's MSNBC program. A bunch of other TV interviews are set for Monday and Tuesday.

On Monday, Rubio will give a breakfast speech to the Florida delegation. He's also holding a fundraiser for his election committee and Reclaim America PAC that night.

Rubio will appear at a Crossroads fundraiser Thursday morning. That night, of course, he steps into the convention spotlight to introduce Mitt Romney.  Or not.
