Rubio To Make Marco On Presidential Race?

MARCO RUBIO is emerging as a serious contender for the US Presidential race - and success for him would bring misery to bookies William Hill, who would have to pay one client £52,000 after he struck the largest bet of the campaign so far, of £4000 at 12/1.

'We took the £4000 bet in one of our West London betting shops when Mr Rubio was a 12/1 shot, but since then he has been consistently well backed and is now 5/2 joint favourite with Jeb Bush to win the Republican nomination' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
