Marco Rubio Receives "Credible" Threats, Police Watch Miami House and D.C. Office
That doesn't mean the threats from yahoos will wait until the nomination is secure, though. Police this morning monitored Rubio's West Miami home and D.C. office after he received "credible" threats yesterday.
Capitol police didn't specify the nature of the threats, the Miami Herald reports, but they were serious enough to warrant the bi-state protection.
It's probably no coincidence that the threats came just a day after Rubio's biggest appearance yet with Romney, a speech in Pennsylvania that many saw as a kind of audition for Florida's junior senator to be Mitt's No. 2.
At noon today, Rubio will be back on all the cable news feeds when he gives a "major speech on the future of U.S. foreign policy" at the Brookings Institute. Capitol security will likely have a heavy presence at the speech, the Herald reports.
Mitt: Just make it official already so the Secret Service can step in. That way we can go back to telling the world what a Tea Party-baiting hypocrite Rubio is without having to worry for the guy's safety.
