Presidential candidate and Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is setting up his senior campaign advisors in Washington, DC – working out of the same office as his political action committee.

Rubio’s spokesman, Alex Conant, told the New York Times that the plan is to keep the campaign team small for the upcoming primary. Rubio plans to open an office in Florida soon in addition to other early voting states.

The only Democrat to throw her hat in the ring for 2016, Hillary Clinton, decided to place her campaign team in New York, where she served as U.S. Senator.

Republican presidential candidate, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), chose to split his headquarters between his own state and Washington, DC

The first Republican contender to announce, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), kept his home base in Houston, Texas.
