MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) met with top fundraisers for a second day in Miami.
The meeting started at around 9 a.m. at the Delano Hotel on Saturday. All this just a day after an aide confirmed Rubio is taking steps to run for president.
Rubio is said to have hired a new fundraiser and is set to visit early primary and caucus states next month, his aide told CBSNews.
While he is not expected to make his bid official for several weeks, he did get an early start on fundraising.
The freshman senator from Florida was seen entering the Delano Hotel onFriday evening for the first day of the meeting with a group known as “Team Marco 2016”.
In an interview with CBS4 News on Wednesday, Rubio hinted he might soon pull the trigger on a presidential run.
“If I want to run for president I don’t have forever to make that choice,” Rubio said in a live interview. “To run a national campaign you need the time to get yourself organized.”
