McConnell Center hosts Senator Marco Rubio
Monday, March 25, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
Marco Rubio, a Republican U.S. senator from Florida, will speak to students and community members March 25 at the University of Louisville.
His free, public talk through the McConnell Center is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. in Bigelow Hall, Miller Information Technology Center, on UofL’s Belknap Campus.
On Feb. 12, Rubio, a Miami native, gave the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address, marking the first time the response was delivered in English and Spanish. Elected to the Senate in 2010, Rubio serves on four Senate committees: Commerce, Science and Transportation; Foreign Relations; Intelligence; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
Rubio has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida and a law degree from the University of Miami School of Law.
His autobiography, “An American Son: A Memoir,” was published in June.
