Rubio shares Democrats' pain



House Speaker Marco Rubio, who led the charge for the Jan. 29 presidential primary, says he's disappointed by the mess it has created for Democrats.

"It was never our intention to make that happen. I really wanted Democrat and Republican candidates to have to come here and address Florida's issues. I feel bad for the Democrats in this state," the Miami Republican said today in an interview to be seen later on the Florida Channel. "From a partisan standpoint, perhaps some people are taking glee. I'm not. I think it's bad for Florida. I hope they can figure it out. I'll do anything I can to help them ... I'm not sure I can."
