Mark K. Lewis, in a column for The Week website, believes that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (pictured with Mitt Romney last year) has what it takes to return the Republican Party to the White House in 2016.
At first glance, a Rubio victory might appear far-fetched. But when you consider Barack Obama’s meteoric political rise, a Rubio presidency four years from now isn’t out of the question.
Among the challenges for Rubio, or any GOP presidential nominee, will be matching the Democratic Party’s voter-turnout organization, gaining the trust of Latino voters and distancing the Republican brand from Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” gaffe.
