Will Skeletons Emerge from Marco Rubio's Closet?

McKay Coppins: "The enduring notion that the 'Republican savior' may have feet of clay has followed him since his arrival on the national stage three years ago. It's been a subject of gossip among the chattering Miami politicos at The Biltmore, a talking point pushed by bloodthirsty Democrats eager to stop his ascent, and a constant source of frustration in the Senator's orbit."

"Rubio is just 41, but he has already served as Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. And his quick rise to national stardom, along with his long, varied career in state politics, well-known financial troubles, and ties to an embattled former congressman have combined to prompt many in the political class -- including some of his most enthusiastic boosters -- to speculate that the Senator's pristine political brand will collapse under the weight of national scrutiny."
