Marco Rubio speech at Brookings Institution: How to follow it

Everything Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) does at this stage in the vice presidential speculation game gets a second look.

So announcements like this one — made the same day Rubio campaigned at an immigration event with Mitt Romney — get Washington’s attention.

Here are the details on how to follow the speech:

When: Wednesday, April 25 at Noon ET.

Where: The Brookings Institution in Washington

How to watch it: Brookings will have a live webcast of the speech (here’s the Brookings page on the event). If a feed is available, we will stream it here in Election 2012.

Brookings President Strobe Talbott and Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) will speak briefly before Rubio.

How to follow the speech on social media: Brookings recommends using the hashtag #BIRubio on Twitter to join the conversation about the event.

You can follow Washington Post bloggers @FeliciaSonmez and @ThinkTankedWapo for updates from the speech.

What to expect from Rubio’s speech:

Rubio’s announcement says the remarks “will focus on whether U.S. global leadership is sustainable and even necessary in the 21st century.”

Rubio is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
