Rubio hits the airwaves -- and the highway



Getting in touch with Marco Rubio is tough these days, but the House Speaker popped up on 100.7 WFLA this morning to discuss his legal challenge to Gov. Charlie Crist's gambling compact. Listen to the interview here.

"This deal was done in secret," Rubio said, while applauding Crist for tackling the issue that has lingered for years.

At one point, Rubio, talking on his cell phone, heads through a toll both and is startled to discover it's free, thanks to Maxwell House. He jokes about it perhaps being a violation of the gift ban.
