Marco Rubio Stuck in the Basement


While I was on Capitol Hill to cover Wednesday’s swearing-in of the 112th Congress, I dropped by Marco Rubio’s office:

Alas, poor Marco! Florida’s Tea Party superstar has been stuck in a temporary office in the basement, behind the cafeteria, on a dead-dead corridor across the hall from the Senate stationery store!
The new senator himself wasn’t in – “spending some family time” after the swearing-in, his receptionist said. Rubio’s office is next door to the temporary office of newly-elected Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana. A staffer in Coats’ office explained to me that unlike the House – where departing members are whisked out of their offices and the new members whisked in before the swearing-in – the Senate gives departing members up to five months to clear out of their offices. So new senators like Rubio and Coats might not be in their permanent offices until May.
