Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will be back in New Hampshire in less than two weeks.
The New Hampshire Journal has learned that Rubio, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, will visit New Hampshire on Oct. 7 to campaign with U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown.
Details of the visit are still being worked out.
Rubio declared himself “a strong supporter of Scott Brown” back in May, but said he was not officially endorsing him at that point. By campaigning with Brown in two weeks, Rubio will be effectively endorsing him, and a formal endorsement during that visit is also possible.
It was May when Rubio last visited New Hampshire for fund-raisers for the state and Rockingham County Republican committees. That was his first visit to the first-primary state in about two years.
He will reportedly return to New Hampshire later in October for an event in Amherst with 2nd District GOP candidate Marilinda Garcia.
Rubio’s early October visit will coincide with an Oct. 6 and 7 visit by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, another likely presidential candidate.
As the New Hampshire Journal first reported on Tuesday, Perry will campaign with Republican candidate for governor Walt Havenstein and speak at the Belknap County Republican Committee’s Harvest Festival at the home of Bill and Faith Tobin in Sanbornton. More stops are expected to be added to the schedule with other New Hampshire GOP candidates.
Perry will also appear at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on Oct. 6.
Also, as the Journal first reported on Saturday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will be in New Hampshire on Friday to campaign with Havenstein.
