Rubio reconnects with tea party in Lakeland
Sen. Marco Rubio will spend a few days traveling Florida this week, including a stop in Lakeland to address tea party members.
The tea party rally is at 1 p.m. tomorrow at Kroon’s Enterprises in Lakeland. Rubio's office said earlier in the day he will participate in a roundtable discussion at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute at Lake Nona in Orlando.
On Wednesday, he is expected in Clearwater for a human trafficking awareness event. Rubio's office said he has taken an interest in the subject, which has particular importance to Cuba, one of the leading offenders. President George W. Bush took up the cause in his re-election campaign and gave a speech targeting the Castro regime during a visit to Tampa.
