The Marco Rubio boom

Marco Rubio, the tea party darling who had remained offstage despite pleas from the national press, stepped into the spotlight this week with a plethora of appearances: the opinion page of the Wall Street Journal, a friendly interview with Fox News and a profile on ABC’s Nightline.

He also talked policy early Wednesday with Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos, had a second bite on Fox Wednesday afternoon – a third appearance is scheduled Thursday – and will hit the national airwaves again Sunday on Fox News Sunday.

Rubio's popularity, and the buzz surrounding his appearances, is a negative reflection on the Republican candidates already in the presidential race.
