    Signs are growing that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is moving towards a run for reelection, a reversal of his past statements committing to retire from the Senate at the end of his term, NBC News reported.

    A major fundraiser for Rubio's presidential bid confirmed the senator and his advisers are instructing operatives and donors to begin laying the groundwork for a run — but emphasized Rubio hasn't made the final decision yet.

    "I think it's making sure things are in place should he make the decision," the fundraiser said.

    Rubio is expected to announce his decision as early as Monday, after consulting with his family this weekend.
