Rubio's book tour will take him through Florida and into battleground states

With Marco Rubio's autobiography, “An American Son,” to be released Tuesday, the U.S. senator and vp hopeful will spend the next few weeks promoting it -- in key battleground states.

The first event will take him to Philadelphia on Wednesday where he'll be featured in a live CBS Radio discussion at the National Constitution Center. The next stop is Florida, according to his book launch page, where he'll start in South Florida on June 30 and spend the next three days winding his way up the west coast and Central Florida and ending in the Panhandle. The promotional journey then takes him to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. 

Chances are sales will be heavier for this book than his first one, 100 Innovative Ideas for Florida's Future. You can still get a copy of that compilation, now selling on Amazon from $6.97.
