Sen. Marco Rubio is making moves to launch a 2016 presidential bid and has even told his team to “proceed as if he is running for president,” one senior adviser told ABC News.
Rubio will reportedly skip votes in the Senate next week in favor of making fundraising stops in California, Texas and Illinois. An upcoming book tour will also take him through all of the early-voting primary states.
Meanwhile, Anna Rogers of the conservative American Crossroads Super PAC will go to work for Rubio’s political action committee on Feb. 1 and will lead the charge to raise the $50 million the senator would need to run in the Republican primaries.
Rubio is expected to make an official announcement in the coming weeks.
