Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has launched a weekly series of online addresses in which he will answer letters from constituents, reports DailyCaller.com
“I think, honestly, a lot of people doubt whether those letters go anywhere other than into a computer system that just spits out a form letter back to them,” Rubio told the Caller after he shot the first address of the series, called “Marco’s Constituent Mail Box.” “So part of it is I want people to know letters are being read, and it does have an impact on us.”
The letters, which begain today, will cover “the good, the bad, the ugly,” a Rubio rep said. His office receives 25,000 communications a week from constituents.
Although there is growing conjecture among conservatives that Rubio is viable as a vice-presidential running mate, the senator denied that the weekly address is a tactic aiming to feed into that. “I don’t know if there’s any calculation behind it other than the fact that someone in our office came up with this great idea about reaching back to constituents,” he said.
