Voters added the same-sex marriage ban to Florida's constitution in 2008.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Sen. Marco Rubio says supporters of gay marriage often show "intolerance" toward people like him who support heterosexual marriages. Rubio also told an audience at Catholic University that those who support abortion rights ignore the rights of "the unborn." Rubio could make a potential 2016 White House run.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The state attorney general says a judge has frozen assets and halted operations at a large English bulldog puppy mill in Jacksonville.
