No nod from Rubio in GOP Senate primary

Lackluster fundraising, concerns about the viability of the frontrunners and the possibility of a new Republican candidate in the U.S. Senate race have made news this week. Sen. Marco Rubio, who had his own high-profile GOP primary in 2010, weighed in on the tumult among Florida Republicans who hope to defeat incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. 

"I have a tremendous working relationship with Sen. Nelson, so I won't say anything negative about Sen. Nelson," Rubio said. "As far as the Republican primary is concerned, I think we have good candidates."

"My understanding is that the chief financial officer of the state, Jeff Atwater, may be interested in running in the race. He'd be a good candidate as well. I think Florida Republicans will nominate a good  candiadte. I want us to be in the majority. I'm not that concerned about the primary."
