Pressure rises on Marco Rubio to run for Senate re-election

WASHINGTON | BY RICHARD COWAN

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday joined a chorus of Republican stalwarts publicly urging Marco Rubio to run for a second Senate term in Florida, as the party faces an uphill fight to maintain its control of the Senate.

"We're doing everything to encourage him to run," McConnell said during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program.

Some political strategists and Senate Republican aides see a potentially weak field of Republican candidates for the Florida Senate seat and think Rubio could help Republicans hold their Senate majority if he entered the race.

He has until June 24 to decide if he wants to run in the Aug. 30 Republican primary.
