Marco Rubio and Donald Trump



It’s a given Marco Rubio will not appear at a campaign event this year with Donald Trump, even as he twists himself into knots over supporting the nominee and criticizing him.

Saturday is likely the closest Rubio gets to Trump, when he appears at a state GOP dinner in Tampa. Trump won’t be there but Mike Pence will. There were news reports earlier in the campaign that Rubio and Pence would hit the trail but people close to Rubio chalked that up to wishful thinking by Pence.

In his speech, will Rubio even mention Trump? Will he try to push praise off on Pence?
