Sen. Marco Rubio to speak in Louisville at McConnell Center

03/04/2013 08:45 AM

Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, the oft mentioned 2016 Republican Presidential candidate, will be this spring’s speaker at the University of Louisville’s McConnell Center later this month.

Rubio, who gave the GOP’s response to the State of the Union speech last month and set Twitter ablaze with his awkward drink of water, will speak to students and community members on March 25. His talk is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. in Bigelow Hall, Miller Information Technology Center, on U of L’s Belknap Campus.

Elected to the Senate in 2010, Rubio serves on four Senate committees: Commerce, Science and Transportation; Foreign Relations; Intelligence; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship.

Tickets for his talk are free and can be requested online at the McConnell Center.
