Will Raul Help Rubio Sell Reform?

Expect this week to play prominently in future presidential debates. It’s when Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-Florida) first big test as a contender for the GOP presidential nomination began. Rubio and seven other senators, ranging from Republicans John McCain and Lindsay Graham to Democrats like Chuck Schumer, unveiled a controversial framework Sunday for overhauling the immigration system. It would increase border security, employment verification, and enforcement, but it would also provide a way for current illegal immigrants to become citizens. That’s what’s caught a lot of attention. But a framework is a long way from a bill, and eight Senators is a long way from 51 Senators, and passing the Senate is a long way from passing the Republican-controlled House. For that last task, the key may be Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador/Daniel Walters, Inlander. More here.'

Question: WWRD? What should Raul do?
