CPAC Wants Romney-Rubio Ticket

Marco’s their man. So said a straw poll of right-leaning voters conducted by the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday evening asking whose name they would like to see beside Mitt Romney’s come election day. Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio scored 30 percent of the vote at the meet-up of the American Conservative Union, breezing past runner-up New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who netted only 14 percent of votes. Rubio is a fan favorite among conservatives, who see him as a fresh face for the party and a potential way to bring Latino voters into the Republican fold. Rep. Paul Ryan scored 9 percent, and Sen. Rand Paul gathered 8 percent.
