Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), yesterday, endorsed presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Fox News.
Last night, Rubio told Fox reporter Sean Hannity that he is confident Romney will be the Republican presidential candidate.
"I am going to endorse Mitt Romney and the reason why is not only is he going to be the Republican nominee, but he offers at this point such a stark contrast to the president's record," Rubio said.
Romney's campaign logged onto Twitter to thank the hispanic politician: "Ann joins me in thanking @MarcoRubio for the confidence he is placing in my leadership and for the great honor he has done me today."
Could this again spark talk of Rubio as a vice president?

Furthermore, the poll asked: Are you more likely to vote Republican if this person was on the ticket:
