Rubio making rounds Tuesday in Tampa Bay



Sen. Marco Rubiuo will highlight school choice legislation with a visit tomorrow to Florida College Academy, a private Christian school in Tampa.

"Rubio will tour classrooms, listen to the stories of parents whose children have benefited from school choice and discuss the Educational Opportunities Act he introduced earlier this year," his office said. "The visit is intended to highlight the importance of giving parents the option to choose the schools that best fit the needs of their children, regardless of whether the school is public, private or a charter school."

Rubio will also visit U.S. Central Command and Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base, and then will address the Republican Party of Pasco County Reagan Day Dinner.

One thing to watch at the dinner is how his involvement with the immigration bill goes over with Republican activists.
