4. Rubio scares me.
I wonder if he could beat Crist in a primary? It's not really a silly question, think about it. FL Republicans are not known for moderation.

Rubio even posts in the Southern Baptist Florida newsletter.

Florida House Speaker may consider bill to protect teachers who criticize evolution.


From the Florida Baptist Witness:

Rubio: Florida House open to legislative fix on evolution

TALLAHASSEE (FBW) An evolution compromise approved on Feb. 19 by the State Board of Education was the best that could be achieved in that body but legislative action to protect academic freedom of teachers offering criticisms of Darwinian evolution is possible, House Speaker Marco Rubio told Florida Baptist Witness in a Feb. 20 interview.

Rubio said the Board of Educations addition of scientific theory of before each reference to evolution in new science standards for Floridas public schools was the best fix available with the way those votes were lining up.

Although he and other House leaders supported the theory compromise in a Feb. 19 letter to members of the Board of Education, Rubio said critics who believe explicit language protecting academic freedom is necessary may be right.
