It was first noticed when he stopped by the CBS4 News studios on Friday for his interview with anchor Rick Folbaum.

The security increase began on Capitol Hill and now involves local police in South Florida.

Rubio's office is acknowledging his higher security but referring all questions to the Capitol Police.

Following inquiries, the Capitol Police released a statement saying, "We do not comment on how we carry out our protective responsibilities for Congress."
