One Florida politician who hasn’t received Crist’s questionnaire, of course, is Marco Rubio–the guy on the cover of the current NR. The article on the inside (by me) may be read here. Some reaction from the Sunshine State’s political press:
Marco Rubio is on the cover the new National Review – a coup that should help the Miami Republican raise some national money from grass roots conservatives.
Former House Speaker Marco Rubio is far behind Gov. Charlie Crist in name recognition and fundraising for their U.S. Senate race, but he has just attained the Republican political equivalent of the Holy Grail — a flattering cover story in The National Review.
Marco Rubio scored a pretty major win in his underdog campaign for the U.S. Senate, landing on the cover of this week’s issue of the National Review, a well-respected conservative newsmagazine.
What Rubio lacks in polling numbers and fundraising he is making up for in positive buzz. He is this month’s cover boy of the National Review magazine, a conservative standard bearer, which insists “Yes, he can.” [Memo to Miami Herald: NR is not a monthly.]
