Marco Rubio has said that he will not seek reelection when his term as Senator ends after November.
There is speculation about his intent going forward, with some suggesting that his request to have his delegates saved is a sign of his hopes to earn the nomination through a brokered convention.
Others insist that Rubio is ready to lay down on the wire and offer his delegates in an effort to beat Trump at the convention.
A new rumor is afoot, however, and it involves Rubio’s well-documented love of the Miami Dolphins football team.
From the New York Post:
Sources told the paper Rubio might work in the team’s executive offices, although a team insider said “there’s nothing to” the report.
For now, it’s speculation, but it would be a suiting transition for a candidate who shared this story on Father’s Day, 2014:
“I’ll never forget when I was a boy and the doctor told me I had to wear leg braces to correct knee problems. I often refused to put them on. But every day when I refused, the phone would ring and — to my great surprise — on the other end would be Don Shula, head coach of the Miami Dolphins. ‘If you want to play for me one day,’ he’d say, ‘you’d better put on those braces.’
“It didn’t occur to me until years later that, unlike Coach Shula, the man on the phone had a Cuban accent and sounded suspiciously like my dad.”
