Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) spoke at the Republican National Convention in late August.

Sen. Marco Rubio’s 12-year-old daughter, Amanda, was involved in a motor vehicle accident Saturday in Miami while the GOP senator was campaigning elsewhere in Florida with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Philip Rucker reports at our blog Election 2012:

Rubio has been traveling with Romney all day. They campaigned together Saturday morning in Pensacola, then Rubio flew on Romney’s chartered jet to Orlando, where they boarded Romney’s campaign bus to drive to a rally in nearby Kissimmee and then on to Land O’Lakes, near Tampa. The two were photographed watching a college football game aboard the campaign bus.
