Another piece to Rubio puzzle in place: Lopez-Cantera says he should run

BY AMY SHERMAN AND MARY ELLEN KLAS

The last piece in the puzzling picture of whether Marco Rubio will seek re-election to the U.S. Senate may have fallen into place Wednesday when his friend, and chosen successor, Carlos Lopez-Cantera, said he thinks Rubio should run.

Lopez-Cantera, the lieutenant governor from Miami, told Politico that he encouraged Rubio to run as they sat in Rubio’s pickup truck in Orlando Sunday evening.

“You should reconsider running for your seat,” Lopez-Cantera said he told Rubio.

Rubio replied: “I don’t want you to feel like you have to say that because of outside pressure.”

Lopez-Cantera told Politico: “Nothing has changed. I’m still running. Marco isn’t.”
