Rubio to hold March donor meeting in Miami



Lest there be any doubt that Marco Rubio is expecting to compete for the Republican presidential nomination in his home state, the Florida senator has invited campaign donors to gather in Miami for two days in March.

Rubio's "Leadership Huddle" -- he likes to use football terms in politics -- is planned for March 10-11, according to an invitation obtained by the Miami Herald. A GOP debate is scheduled for March 10 at the University of Miami, and the Florida primary takes place March 15.

To attend, Rubio donors must have raised at least $27,000 for the campaign.
