WASHINGTON - Alex Conant, who ran the press shop for former Gov. Tim Pawlenty's now-shuttered presidential campaign, will be joining the staff of Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio.
A Rubio staffer confirmed the news this morning, which was first reported by Roll Call.
Rubio, a Senate freshman who was elected last year, is widely seen as a potential GOP vice-presidential candidate based in part on his youth and potential appeal to Latino voters.
Conant was spotted by this reporter from afar in a Senate hallway last week. Conant is not a stranger to the Senate, he previously worked for South Dakota Republican John Thune and also served a stint at the Republican National Committee.
So what?!?! Are you reporting on all the staff movements of candidates or former candidates of any office now? Or is it just because MPR reports any news relaese info they get?
"Rubio, a Senate freshman who was elected last year, is widely seen as a potential GOP vice-presidential candidate"
I sure hope he isn't. . .Neither Rubio or Jindal is eligible to be our POTUS.
Neither man's parents were U.S. citizens therefore they are NOT eligible to be POTUS or VEEP ; the exact same problem Obama has. If Rubio and Jindal are true patriots and supporters of the Constitution, one or both of them will immediately call a press conference and announce that he is not a ‘natural born citizen’ because his parents were not U.S. citizens and that he cannot accept any invitation to join a presidential ticket.

Help me make that happen. Go to http://rubio.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact or http://www.gov.la.gov/index.cfm?md=form&tmp=email_governor. Tell Rubio and Jindal that you expect them to do the right thing so that we can both fix the constitutional crisis we currently face and forever prevent another from occurring. This problem should have been resolved following Chester A. Arthur’s administration when it was discovered that his father was not a U.S. citizen when Chester was born – but it wasn’t. Let's finally put this question to rest.
If Rubio or Jindal will stand tall and make that announcement, it would immediately shine a spotlight on Barry's ineligibility and force the SCOTUS/Congress to act. Help me make that happen! It will only take a couple minutes - please do it now!
