HE'S JUST RUNNING TO BE DAN QUAYLE ANYWAY:

Marco Rubio's Donor Obstacles: A Limited Base and Another Floridian (JEREMY W. PETERS and ASHLEY PARKER, JULY 3, 2015, NY Times)

Mr. Rubio has a notable disadvantage in the congested, fragmented field of Republican candidates: He has no natural national base of support to draw on, the way Senator Ted Cruz does with evangelical Christians or Senator Rand Paul does with libertarians.

And Mr. Rubio has been cut off from some of the financial support he received in his home state, Florida, when it elected him to the Senate in 2010: Many of the wealthy donors who propelled him to national political fame are sticking by Jeb Bush, the former governor.

It would help if he'd at least accomplished something in his career.
