Rubio Picked to Respond to Obama

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) will deliver the GOP's official response to President Obama's State of the Union next week in both English and Spanish, Roll Call reports.

"Rubio, a rumored contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, is one of the rising stars in his party's ranks and has been taking a leading role on key issues such as an immigration policy overhaul. Rubio's selection by party leaders demonstrates their confidence in him and also indicates an awareness that the party needs to make greater strides within the Latino community to win its support in future elections."
