Rubio could campaign soon with Mike Pence



Marco Rubio’s campaign won’t confirm -- or deny -- reports he will campaign soon in Florida with Mike Pence. But it seems quite likely.

“Marco has tremendous respect and admiration for Gov. Pence, but we have no joint events scheduled with him at this time,” spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas said in an email.

“At this time” leaves the door open, and Rubio and Pence have spoken.

The big question is will Rubio appear anywhere with Donald Trump. "I have my own campaign to run," he told the Tampa Bay Times after an event earlier this month in Daytona Beach. "So we’re going to set our campaign schedule, we’re going to follow it. If there’s an opportunity and it makes sense, we’ll explore it. Obviously that hasn’t presented itself yet."
