Rubio headed on 'private and personal' trip to Israel



Senator-elect Marco Rubio and his wife Jeanette will be making what his staff called a "private and personal visit to the Holy Land," next week.

"There will be no official meetings or media interviews, and specific details of the trip will be kept private," spokesman Alex Burgos said. Rubio is paying for the trip himself, and plans to return. "Senator-elect Rubio is also working with pro-Israel supporters to make an official trip back to Israel early next year after he is sworn into office."
