As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

A Path in Politics

He grew up in a Roman Catholic family alongside three siblings; the family also briefly lived in Las Vegas before moving back to their hometown in Miami. He attended South Miami Senior High School, and matriculated in 1989, then gained a one year football scholarship at Tarkio College, and afterwards attended Santa Fe Community College. He went on to attend the University of Florida and graduated with a degree in political science in 1993. After completing his undergraduate studies, he then went to the University of Miami. School Of Law to gain a JD which he completed as cum laude.

While studying law, he did an internship for US Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and also worked for the presidential campaign of Bob Dole in 1996. Two years after completing his law degree, he was elected as City Commissioner for West Miami, and then went on to become a part of the Florida House of Representatives in 2000, filling the seat for the 111th House District, campaigning with advocacies on early childhood education and tax cuts. He went on to be re-elected for four terms, with three of them unopposed, so spending a total of nine years in the Florida House of Representatives, becoming one of the two majority whips of the house, and then eventually the majority leader. Aside from his work there, he became a part of a law firm which specialized in zoning and land use, then in 2004 joined the lobbying firm named Broad and Cassell.

In 2005, Marco became the House Speaker after other State Representatives dropped out, the first Cuban American to hold the position, actually for the next three years. As speaker, he compiled multiple ideas which later became a book entitled “100 Innovative Ideas for Florida’s Future”. He also introduced a plan to reduce state property taxes back to the 2001 levels, which would later become the largest tax cuts in Florida’s history.

Marco then started his own law firm in 2008, and also began teaching under a fellowship appointment at Florida International University (FIU). He had generally good reviews as a teacher, despite inevitably teaching some students politically opposed to some of his values.

The following year, he planned to run for the US Senate seat which was vacated by Mel Martinez, and received a lot of support for the Republican nomination, and winning the general election with 49 percent of the vote against two other candidates, and with the win he was speculated as a potential Republican candidate for the 2012 presidential election. He subsequently sought re-election in 2016, and won with 52% of the vote.

During his time as senator, he became a defender of the United States embargo against Cuba, and also supported US participation in the military campaign against Libya to oust Muammar Gaddafi. He voted against the Budget Control Act of 2011, and introduced a bill to allow employers to be exempted from mandated coverage for contraception based on moral or religious ground (the bill was not adopted). He also voted against fiscal cliff resolutions. and against an expansion of background checks for gun purchases. A few of his latest works in the senate include co-sponsoring bills regarding the crisis in Haiti, and the incursion by Russia into Ukraine.

The NRA Issue

In early-2018, Rubio attracted issues after a mass shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in which 17 were killed and 17 more were wounded. The issues caused a boycott against the gun rights advocacy group called the National Rifle Association (NRA). Several businesses terminated their relationships with the group, and questions arose about how the NRA donated around $3 million to Rubio. Rubio then quickly responded that he accepted the donation because it was helping with his agenda.

1It took the telephone 75 years to reach 100 million users. It took "Candy Crush" one.
2A half-century has passed since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to awaken our nation's conscience. His vision was simple yet profound: that America must fulfill the promise made in her founding documents by allowing every citizen to access their God-given right..I have taken my own children to the Lincoln Memorial and shown them where Dr. King spoke to the unfulfilled promise of our nation. Standing in that place I was filled with pride to know my children live in a nation where the cultural landscape is dramatically different from the one that Dr. King saw just fifty years before. He reminded us that opportunity and freedom are American ideals, belonging to no singular demographic. His message and legacy must live all around us as we move toward America's brightest days.
3I think the bigger challenge that we face, and that we continue to face, is that we have not done a good enough job of communicating to people what conservatism is. In fact, we've allowed a myth to take hold in the minds of some that conservatism is about helping the people who have 'made it' and not about helping the people who are trying to make it. I think we have a very compelling argument, which happens to be true: the people who have made it - billionaires and multi-billion dollar corporations - they may not like big government but they can afford to deal with it. They can hire the best lawyers in America and try to figure out the loopholes and the best lobbyists to create them.
4Usually when you try to accomplish something you're almost never judged kindly by your contemporaries. I think that's true for all great leaders. If you look back, they were almost all significantly unpopular or had tremendous opposition they faced because of what they were trying to do.
5Ultimately, the dignity that my grandfather and father had was showing up every day and providing for their families. The challenges they faced were very basic. A tough day for me is if I lose an election or get a bad story in the paper. A tough day for my dad was they might be late on the rent. A tough day for my grandfather might have meant his daughters didn't eat.
6I don't know how inspiring I am to people on the left, but I'm not a big believer in transformative people in politics. There are people that have an historic opportunity to speak the truth and take on issues of historic moment. That's not something you can choose to be. That's something that just happens and falls on your lap, usually during periods of extreme trial. And I don't think any of us want to experience extreme trial for our country.
7There were some in politics who believed that all you had to do was to be the alternative to the incumbent and you would win. But I never believed in that. I've always believed that you were better on offense that you were on defense. You were much better for being for something than against someone.
