CBS Miami is reporting that additional security has been provided for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for the past two weeks. The additional security was observed when Rubio visited the studios for an interview.

The security increase began on Capitol Hill and now involves local police in South Florida.

Rubio’s office is acknowledging his higher security but referring all questions to the Capitol Police.

Following inquiries, the Capitol Police released a statement saying, “We do not comment on how we carry out our protective responsibilities for Congress.”
