Is Fla. Sen. Rubio on GOP contenders' VP shortlists?

Marco Rubio of Florida has been a U.S. senator for less than 10 months. But the son of Cuban immigrants from a swing state has found himself on the short list of potential vice presidential nominees by presidential candidate Mitt Romney and others. But in recent weeks, Rubio has raised his profile and perhaps his prospects with a series of policy speeches, his first outside Florida or Washington. He was at Wingate at the invitation of the Jesse Helms Center.
