Rubio for Thompson Rumors



Buzz overheard Fred Thompson supporter state Rep. Seth McKeel bragging on the shuttle bus to the convention that House Speaker Marco Rubio was supposed to endorse Fred Thompson today. But when Buzz confronted McKeel later, McKeel said he didn't know for sure. He said he's talked to Rubio about Thompson several times, but said that Rubio has property taxes on the mind. He suggested Buzz had misunderstood. (Which is possible.)

Thompson spokesman Jeff Sadosky discounted such an endorsement, but added Thompson would love one.
