Florida senator and Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio will be in Utah later this month for a fundraiser at the home of a Davis County couple.
Rubio will appear Oct. 19 at a $2,700-per-person roundtable at the home of Karen and Scott Keller, followed by a $500-per-person reception.
Rubio is the third Republican candidate to come to Utah on a fundraising trip. Last month, both former Texas Gov. Jeb Bush and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul visited the state. Rubio also was in Utah in June, along with several other GOP presidential hopefuls, to speak at Mitt Romney's E2 Summit in Deer Valley.
Scott Keller is the president and CEO of Keller Investment Properties. The couple hosted a fundraiser for Romney in 2012 that the campaign said raised more than $50,000.
Rubio is running either third or fourth among the crowded field of Republican candidates in recent polling, trailing Donald Trump, Ben Carson and, in some snapshots, Carly Fiorina.
He has won the backing of some prominent Utah Republicans, including House Speaker Greg Hughes and U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart.
