Rubio playing hard to get



The buzz at the Republican convention in Orlando a few weeks ago was that House Speaker Marco Rubio was going to endorse Fred Thompson. It never happened.

Speculation grew when Rubio and the former senator were listed as guests at the Florida Family Policy Council dinner, which took place last night at the Weston Diplomat in Hollywood.

But once again, Rubio was mum about who he would back.

“I’m very interested in his campaign,” Rubio said of Thompson, according to the Palm Beach Post. But Rubio also said he likes other candidates.
