U.S. Sen. Connie Mack: We need you to run for reelection, Marco Rubio

Donald Trump wants Marco Rubio to run for another U.S. Senate term. So does Mitch McConnell. So does the NRSC and most of the GOP establishment in Washington and much of it in Florida.

Now we can add former U.S. Sen. Connie Mack to the chorus beseeching Rubio to run again:

“Only one thing is for certain this election cycle: The stakes are too high for our state, and our country, not to have Marco Rubio in the United States Senate. Marco has proven himself to be a steady, honest, passionate voice for all Floridians," said the widely respected Connie Mack III, one of Rubio's predecessors in that seat.

"With so much uncertainty at the top of the ticket, and around the world, we need Marco’s trusted, conservative voice as a check and balance in Washington, no matter who wins the White House," he said. "Florida and America need Marco in the Senate.”
