Rubio Already Visits Iowa

Politico: "Thirty-eight months before the next presidential vote is cast, Marco Rubio on Saturday night became the first of the potential 2016 contestants to swoop in to this first caucus state and test the GOP's new rallying cry to broaden its appeal. Seven hundred people turned out to see the Florida senator at the annual birthday fundraiser bash for GOP Gov. Terry Branstad. Rubio had the spotlight all to himself -- he said he was merely here to help the governor mark his 66th birthday, but no one believed it for a minute."

"In his speech at Branstad's party, Rubio said he understood Republicans' frustrations over their electoral loss, but insisted that the country needed to return to its traditional principles to remain a power and global role model."

National Memo: GOP leaders already jockeying for 2016.
