Republican presidential candidate and Florida Senator Marco Rubio has agreed to participate in a forum with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, NBC News has learned.
A date for the Q&A session still is being negotiated, but could take place as early as this month. Rubio missed a March Hispanic chamber gathering in Washington, D.C. because of schedule conflicts.
This would be the third in a series of presidential candidate forums with the chamber's president and CEO Javier Palomarez. Ted Cruz, who also is vying for the GOP nomination, and Democratic presidential hopeful Martin O'Malley also have participated in previous sessions.
Latino groups have been getting attention from candidates interested in capturing votes from the growing Hispanic community. Democrats Hillary Clinton and O'Malley are scheduled to speak to the National Council of La Raza's conference that began this week and extends to next week. No GOP candidates were on the NCLR agenda as of Thursday.
