Senate candidate Rubio to speak in Venice

U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio will speak Saturday at a meeting of the Republican Club of South Sarasota County in Venice.

The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. at the South Venice Civic Association Clubhouse, 720 Alligator Drive, which is about three-fourths of a mile west of Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41).

Rubio, a former speaker of the Florida House Representatives, is running against Gov. Charlie Crist and four other candidates for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sen. George Lemieux, who was sworn in Thursday after the resignation of former Sen. Mel Martinez.

Lemieux, who was appointed by Crist to the position, is not running for a full term in next year's elections.

  1. I believe Marco Rubio would make a much better Republican candidate than Charlie "blowin' in the wind" Crist. Go, Marco, go!
