Marco Rubio, the former speaker of the Florida House of Representatives from West Miami, who is seeking the same U.S. Senate seat coveted by Gov. Charlie Crist, plans some local grassroots politicking.
The seat became open after Mel Martinez announced he would not complete his term.
Rubio is set to visit the Sarasota Republican Club 6 p.m. Oct. 15 at the Sarasota Yacht Club.
Rubio is also scheduled to visit the East Manatee Republican Club 11:30 a.m. Nov. 12 at the Peridia Golf and Country Club; 4950 Peridia Blvd., Bradenton. Cost is $15.
