Lenny Curry says Rubio should run for Senate again

In another sign of a coordinated effort to draft Marco Rubio, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry today said he should run for re-election.

“I plan on letting him know we need him in the Senate,” Curry told Florida Politics blog. “I’m going to call him and tell him. He should run; there’s no question in my mind.”

Curry also made that point in an interview with a Jacksonville TV station.

Curry lends to the idea that Republicans have been scripting a way for Rubio to change his mind. Mitch McConnell and other promient Republicans in Washington have made the call and Rubio has been somewhat less than adamant about following through on his plan, though he's says nothing has changed.
