That journey began when his parents first left Cuba in 1956. After Fidel Castro solidified his Communist grip on power, Mario and Oria Rubio could never again return to their homeland, but they embraced their new country and taught their children to appreciate its unique opportunities.
In college and law school, Rubio was driven by his twin passions for football and politics. As a young attorney he ran for the West Miami City Commission, a role that led to the Florida House of Representatives. In just six years, he rose to Speaker of the House and became a leading advocate for free enterprise, better schools, limited government and a fairer, simpler tax system. His U.S. Senate campaign started as an extreme long shot, but Rubio traveled the state with his message of empowerment and optimism, eventually winning in a dramatic upset election.
