Sen. Marco Rubio’s new book “An American Son” was released last week with a splash of publicity — and now will debut its first week out
on the prestigious New York Times best-seller’s list.

Rubio, a conservative and tea party favorite, rose to national prominence after defeating Republican Fla. Gov. Charlie Crist in a heated GOP primary in 2010.

Rubio is considered the leading favorite among conservatives to be Romney’s vice presidential running mate. And, according to a recent IBOPE poll, Rubio was the leading choice to be Romney’s VP among all voters. Romney has indicated that Rubio is being considered for the job.

In “An American Son” the first-term Florida senator chronicles his dramatic rise to national prominence in his memoir, which he describes as “an ode to this country,” the “single greatest nation in all of human history.”

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax recently, Rubio discussed his autobiography, which offers an extraordinarily candid look at his “mistakes and successes,” and reveals that during his longshot campaign for the Senate against Florida’s then incumbent governor, the odds appeared so insurmountable that he actually contemplated withdrawing from the race so he wouldn’t be “embarrassed by losing,” but his wife convinced him to continue on.

Rubio, a devout Catholic, also discusses at length the role his faith has played in his political aspirations.

“In the process of writing a book, you come to conclusions that maybe you didn’t have before you started the process,” the charismatic tea party favorite and former speaker of the Florida House told Newsmax. “It forces you to stop for a second, reflect back on your life, and then try to share with readers the lessons that you’ve learned, how you’ve learned from your mistakes and from your successes, and hopefully inspire people not just for public service but hopefully to be conservatives too.”
