CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on “Inside Politics” to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.
WASHINGTON (CNN) – A Missouri Democratic family feud, a Kentucky Senate tactic worth tracking and some new nuggets about the busy 2016 GOP presidential maneuvering made for an action packed trip around the Inside Politics table: FULL POST
Washington (CNN) – Citing a “growing intolerance” against opponents of same-sex marriage, Sen. Marco Rubio argued that those who advocate same-sex marriage need to be more respectful of those who oppose it.
“Supporting the definition of marriage as one man and one woman is not anti-gay. It's pro-traditional marriage,” the Florida Republican said in a speech at Catholic University. “And if support for traditional marriage is bigotry, then Barack Obama was a bigot until just before the 2012 election.”
(CNN) - Marco Rubio's apparently not so concerned if Hillary Clinton decides to make another run for the White House.
"I just think she's a 20th century candidate," the first-term senator from Florida and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate told NPR.
(CNN) – Three Republicans with lofty aspirations nearly had their political careers derailed over risky positions on immigration.
But the crisis on the southern border involving an influx of nearly 60,000 migrant children this year from Central America may help Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Rick Perry repair a broken trust on immigration with conservatives.
Washington (CNN) – Marco Rubio, the Florida Senator and possible White House contender, will court some of the Republican Party’s most conservative voters with a visit to South Carolina next month.
Rubio has been booked as the keynote speaker at Rep. Jeff Duncan’s annual Faith and Freedom Barbecue in Anderson on August 25th, a GOP source familiar with the plans told CNN.
(CNN) – While the suspected mastermind of the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi is now on U.S. soil, the political fallout related to his prosecution may just be beginning.
The criminal complaint against Ahmed Abu Khatallah was filed nearly a year ago, and he was nabbed two weeks ago in eastern Libya. He appeared in a federal court in Washington on Saturday – much to some Republicans’ chagrin.
(CNN) – Marco Rubio on Wednesday added his voice to GOP-fueled criticism over the U.S. decision to swap five terror detainees for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Rubio told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that President Barack Obama, by authorizing the swap, has endangered “countless American men and women in uniform across the globe."
(CNN) - A Mississippi man was sentenced to 25 years in prison for sending ricin-laced letters addressed to President Barack Obama and other public offices, the Justice Department said on Monday.
James Everett Dutschke, 41, of Tupelo pleaded guilty in January to possessing and mailing the threatening letters, which were dusted with the ricin - a natural and highly toxic compound extracted from castor beans.
