Rubio to Richmond to raise cash for Cantor
Rising republican star and Tea Party favorite, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) will be in Richmond this week to headline a fundraiser for Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Henrico). Cantor is the House Majority Leader.
The “Cantor Campaign Breakfast” will take place Friday morning at the Richmond Convention Center.
Rubio is a darling of the conservative right and beat back former Gov. Charlie Crist in a contentious republican primary before easily being elected to the Senate in 2010. Interestingly, he is considered on the shortlist to be asked to run for vice president with the eventual GOP, in part, because of his popularity in a vital swing state.
Of course along with Rubio on that short list for VP is Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell (R).
