Staff changes for Sen. Marco Rubio

Cesar Conda, chief of staff to Sen. Marco Rubio is moving to Rubio's Reclaim America PAC as a senior advisor, a sign of Rubio's 2016 presidential hopes.

Alberto Martinez, who has served as Rubio's deputy chief of staff since 2013, will succeed Conda as chief of staff, according to a news release. Todd Reid, Rubio's state director since 2011, will become deputy chief of staff.

Said Rubio: "As we look forward to big things the rest of this year and beyond, this will allow us to maximize our team's strengths as we work to outline a conservative governing vision for the 21st century and elect a Republican Senate majority."
