Florida’s two U.S. senators--Marco Rubio and Rick Scott--joined U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and more than 30 members of the Senate Republican Conference in a letter to U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona requesting the withdrawal of the Department’s “Proposed Priorities” on American history and civics education.
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., spoke on the Senate floor on Monday to discuss the current events and America’s founding. Rubio pushed back against the “1619 Project” from the New York Times which hopes to “reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of [the United States'] national narrative."
