Rubio selling Miami home he touted in State of the Union response

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) emphasized during his State of the Union response last night that he still lives in the "working class neighborhood I grew up in" — but didn't mention that he won't live there for long.

Rubio put his West Miami house on the market for $675,000 in November and is moving his family to Washington, D.C., a spokesman said a few weeks ago.

"I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in," he said in the speech as a way to illustrate his middle-class roots. "My neighbors aren't millionaires. They're retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare."

Members of Congress often move their families to Washington to be closer to them — and Rubio has complained how much time away from his family — and keep smaller residences back in their home districts and states for when they head back.
