Florida Republicans are hoping that the tapping of Tampa for the upcoming GOP national convention will help put Florida in the GOP column in the 2012 presidential race, according to a report in the Tampa Tribune..

Rubio, assuming he wins this year, "would be a superstar at a convention like that," Thrasher added.
