Donald Trump is encouraging "Little Marco" to run for re-election in Florida.
After weeks of aggressive attacks and name calling during the GOP primary, Trump and Marco Rubio have called a truce, of sorts, NBC News reported.
Rubio recently came to Trump's defense on Twitter, saying the protesters at Trump's rallies are "professional" and not violent, as he claims the media puts it. And now, Trump, who once said Rubio couldn't get elected "dogcatcher" in Florida and called him "Little Marco," is urging his former rival to keep his Senate seat.

"Poll data shows that @marcorubio does by far the best in holding onto his Senate seat in Florida. Important to keep the MAJORITY. Run Marco!" Trump tweeted.
On CNN Thursday afternoon, Rubio said he wants "to be helpful" to the GOP presumptive nominee and will release his delegates to vote for Trump. Rubio also said he would be willing to speak on Trump's behalf.
