Former Fla. Speaker Rubio to reveal Senate plans

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Rubio, a Miami Republican, already has a Senate exploratory committee and says he'll make his final decision on a run "very, very shortly."

When Republican Sen. Mel Martinez announced in December that he
wouldn't seek a second term, most expected a flood of candidates to
enter the race.

But so far no major Republicans have said they will run for Senate, largely because most potential candidates are waiting to see if Crist will seek the seat.

Rubio said Thursday that Crist's plans won't affect his.
