Born in Miami of Cuban immigrants, the one-time high school football star rose from positions in local government to become speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. After winning a U.S. Senate seat in 2010, he helped forge a bipartisan compromise on immigration policy.

Now Rubio has put a sweeping tax reform plan, which he calls necessary for adapting the U.S. economy to 21st century challenges, at the center of his White House campaign. He sat down with John Harwood at a Cuban restaurant in Detroit, where he was addressing that city’s Economic Club.
