Note from Rubio to the Tea Party:
From Taegan Goddard's Political Wire, Marco Rubio's message can basically be boiled down to a combination of "thanks for the campaign money" and "it's not me, it's radical you":
The St. Petersburg Times notes Sen.-elect Marco Rubio (R), a longtime GOP insider, is already distancing himself from the Tea Party after his victory last week.
This should be enough to have the Tea pity Party dreamers seeing rouge as he took their money and ran so fast the tread-marks are still fresh:
Rubio has already made it clear that he will not be a rogue senator. One day after the election, he declared his support for the GOP establishment when he said he looked forward to serving under Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. He did not mention Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, viewed as the more ideologically pure conservative and alternative power center, who championed Rubio's campaign early on.
