Washington (CNN) – Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida boosted his vice presidential buzz Wednesday as a possible running mate for Mitt Romney, giving what his office billed as a "major foreign policy speech."

The freshman senator, who ran as a tea party favorite in 2010, voiced an "internationalist" perspective on major global issues, emphasizing the need for American leadership and intervention in areas like Syria, Russia, and Iran at the Brookings Institution, a prominent international think tank based in Washington.

Michigan results provoke accusations, ire

(CNN) - Rick Santorum's campaign accused Mitt Romney of "political thuggery" Thursday after the Michigan Republican Party announced it was awarding two at-large delegates to the former Massachusetts governor.

The decision by the state party means that Romney won 16 delegates Tuesday night and Santorum was awarded the remaining 14 of the 30 delegates up for grabs in the primary. Media outlets, including CNN, previously estimated the count as a 15-15 tie between the candidates.
