MIAMI (AP) -- Marco Rubio says he's bringing Washington to every corner of Florida.

The Republican senator will promote his constituent service in a new report Thursday detailing his staff's outreach work. The report coincides with the 500th time Rubio's aides have held "mobile office" hours throughout the state. Thursday's session in Winter Park will focus on protection from scams.

At the top of the issue list for those seeking help: immigration, veterans affairs, Social Security and taxes.

Rubio says in the report that government was critical to helping his parents come to the United States from Cuba in 1956. Now he says much of his work involves helping people navigate the country's "broken immigration system."

The efforts could bolster Rubio's support in Florida as he considers a presidential bid in 2016, when he is up for re-election.
