Trump urges Rubio to run for reelection of his Senate seat

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on Thursday urged Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) to run for reelection in Florida.

“Poll data shows that [Marco Rubio] does by far the best in holding onto his Senate seat in Florida. Important to keep the MAJORITY. Run Marco!” Trump said in a tweet.

Rubio decided to not run for reelection so he could focus on his now-suspended presidential bid, but Republicans have urged him to reconsider fearing that Democrats could win the seat.

Trump and Rubio had a contentious relationship as rivals during the primary, with Rubio calling Trump a con man and Trump referring to the senator as “Little Marco.” Despite that Rubio said he would be willing to speak on behalf of Trump at the Republican National Convention in July in Cleveland.
