Rubio releases preview of 100 Ideas, heads to Washington

The House's triumvarate of leadership, incoming House Speaker Marco Rubio, Reps. Ray Sansom and Dean Cannon, unveiled the first fifth of their 100 Ideas Wednesday, calling them the stuff of water cooler and dinner table conversations. The trio then headed straight to Washington, D.C., where they will discuss their 100 Ideas initiative at the annual post-election meeting of GOPAC, the Newt Gingrich-supported Republican organization dedicated to electing GOP leaders in state and local  offices.

They also will appear today on a GOPAC panel to discuss the new idea that could have the most immediate national impact: shifting Florida's 2008 presidential primary to immediately follow New Hampshire's, placing Florida in pivotal place of helping to designate the next presidential contenders. The idea is that while Florida's primary may follow New Hampshire and occur simultaneously with other early primaries, the state's early voters could give Florida a head start and attract candidates to campaign here.
