Sen. Marco Rubio is expected to give a "major speech" on foreign policy Wednesday hosted by The Brookings Institution, according to his office.
The news comes as Rubio (R-Fla.) was on the stump with Mitt Romney, and as he is being touted as a top contender for the former Massachusetts governor's vice presidential pick.
After appearing in Pennsylvania with Romney on Monday, the Florida senator will “deliver a major speech on the future of U.S. foreign policy at an event hosted by The Brookings Institution” his office said.
“Rubio’s remarks will focus on whether U.S. global leadership is sustainable and even necessary in the 21st century,” the release said.
Rubio's name has come up time and time again as a good choice for Romney but he has said he is not interested in the vice presidential nod.
“I’m not even going to discuss the process anymore,” Rubio said on CNN Sunday. “I’m going to be respectful of the process he’s put in place.”
