Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is fighting members of his own party in the Senate as it moves toward a possible vote on the nomination of State Department official Roberta Jacobson to be the next U.S. ambassador to Mexico.
Jacobson is known for leading negotiations that helped the U.S. and Cuba take steps toward normalized relations, a move that many Republicans and Democrats opposed, especially Cuban-Americans like Rubio.
