DENVER -- Rallying Republicans hours before this year's first presidential debate, Sen. Marco Rubio on Wednesday highlighted Vice President Joe Biden's statement that the middle class has been "buried" to argue that the nation has suffered under President Obama and needs new leadership in November. "Over the last four years, the American middle class has been buried," the Florida lawmakers said, and the crowd gathered in a rodeo complex roared. "Everyone says, 'Oh, you're a partisan Republican for saying that.' No, no, those aren't my words.

HENDERSON, Nev. - Campaigning for Mitt Romney in Nevada, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio called the GOP presidential nominee's position on the so-called Dream Act kids “logical.” In an interview published Tuesday, Romney told the Denver Post that he would honor visas granted to some young immigrants under an executive order announced by President Obama in June. In August, the administration started the program to grant work permits and two-year deportation deferrals to illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Former Florida Gov.  Charlie Crist, a onetime Republican turned independent, savaged the GOP ticket on Thursday, telling a friendly Democratic audience that his old party would not seek common-sense solutions or common ground. “As a former lifelong Republican, it pains me to tell you that today's Republicans and their standard-bearers Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan just aren't up to the task,” Crist told thousands of delegates at the party's national convention.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Marco Rubio linked his family's immigrant story to that of Mitt Romney's in a speech introducing the Republican nominee Thursday, saying the shared experiences were testimony to what makes America an exceptional nation. Rubio, one of a long list of rising Republican stars granted key speaking roles at the Republican National Convention, balanced his address to a riveted audience to include elements of his own background that have endeared him to the party with a full-throated endorsement of Romney's capacity to lead the nation, while also zinging the Democratic incumbent.

PALM HARBOR, Fla. - Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who will introduce Mitt Romney before he formally accepts the GOP nomination, said on Tuesday that voters will come away from the Republican National Convention with a clearer understanding of the choice they will make in November as well as a more intimate understanding of Romney. “By the end of the week, it will be clear what a special person he is on the personal front, irrespective of how people may feel on the issues,” Rubio said of Romney.

Ann Romney is assured a prime-time network speaking slot in the revamped speaking schedule for next week's Republican National Convention. Organizers moved presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney's wife from Monday - when the three networks said they would offer no comprehensive prime-time coverage - to Tuesday, when NBC, ABC and CBS all pledged to offer at least an hour of programming from the Tampa convention. By moving the time slot for Romney's wife, the Republicans solidified a prime-time lineup that tilts heavily toward attracting support from two key groups - women and Latinos - while also tending to the candidate's sizable likability deficit.

WASHINGTON - In a nod to onetime vice presidential contenders, the Republican convention has given key roles to Chris Christie, the New Jersey governor, and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. Christie will deliver the keynote address while Rubio, a conservative favorite, will introduce Romney on Aug. 30, the final night of the gathering in Tampa. Announcing the lineup, Republican National Convention Chairman Reince Priebus called Christie “a leader of principle and conviction,” and Rubio “one of America's most dynamic and inspiring leaders.” Christie said it was an honor to deliver the convention's keynote address.

WASHINGTON - Rob who? Ohio Sen. Rob Portman remains the betting favorite to be chosen as Mitt Romney's running mate, but a new poll finds that Marco Rubio is the leading choice of Republican voters nationwide. Americans, in fact, seem to have little opinion of some of the most often-named short-listers. That will change very quickly for whoever is ultimately the GOP's nominee for vice president. Romney told NBC's Chuck Todd in an interview on Thursday that he would not discuss his choice, but that he expected “to have a person that has a strength of character, a vision for the country that adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country.”   A CNN/Opinion Research Corp.
