Jeb Bush was his political mentor: The relationship between Rubio and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush goes back to 1998 when Rubio was running for West Miami city commissioner and Bush was running for governor. Just two years later, Rubio was elected to the Florida House of Representatives, and as he rose through the ranks of that chamber over the next decade, he had opportunities to work and consult with Bush. Bush gave Rubio with a sword representing conservative values in 2005 when he became the first Cuban-American House speaker in Florida's history.
