Rubio Marco is the senator from Florida. He is representing republican to Washington DC.Rubio Marco was elected to the United States Senate in 2010, he set a steadfast objective for himself while in office: to help bring the American Dream back within reach of those who feel it is slipping away. That is the goal line he strives toward with his every effort, and it’s the measure he uses to keep score.
The reason he is so passionate about restoring the American Dream is because he has lived it himself. Marco’s parents came to America from Cuba in 1956 and earned their way to the middle class working humble jobs – his father as a bartender in hotels and his mom as a maid, cashier and retail clerk. By their loving and powerful example, Marco Rubio learned the importance of work and family and developed the belief that all things are possible in America.
Rubio Marco has spent most of his life in West Miami where he lives today with his wife Jeanette and four children. One of the reasons he loves this South Florida community so much is the incredible diversity of people he counts as his neighbors. He believes they helped him shape his impression of the American Dream.
It wasn’t long after he earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida and from the University of Miami Law School that he felt drawn to serve the people in public office.
Marco started as a City Commissioner for West Miami before being elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2000, and then Speaker in November 2006. Before taking this post, he authored the book 100 Innovative Ideas for Florida’s Future, which was based on conversations he had with Floridians at ‘Idearaisers’ that he with his colleagues hosted around the state. As Speaker, he helped enact many of the ideas in this book.
Rubio Marco was proud to be a champion for limited government at the state level, but after seeing the impact of his successes there, he wanted to take the ideas for conservative reform to where they were needed the most: Washington, D.C.
When Rubio Marco launched his campaign for the U.S. Senate in 2009, he was expected to lose big to the better-funded and better-known Republican primary opponent. Yet with a come-from-behind victory, the people of Florida elected him on the promise of bringing conservative ideas to the United States Senate.
Since arriving in Washington in January of 2011, that is exactly what he has done. He has fought against the Washington establishment’s big government vision for America, standing up to ObamaCare and opposing budgets that encourage more debt at the expense of job creation and lasting prosperity.
With his placements on The Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, the Committee on Foreign Relations, the Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Marco has advocated for oversight and reforms to key government functions, vital measures to keep the people safe, and whenever necessary, has served as a check against President Obama’s agenda.
