As part of the “Indivisible” playbook that came out around the time of Trump's inauguration, activists crowded sidewalks outside satellite offices of congress members (namely Republicans) to call on them to oppose things like the confirmations of Betsy DeVos and Rex Tillerson. Those efforts didn't exactly sway U.S. Senator from Florida Marco Rubio, who rode the Tea Party wave into office in 2010, but they did bring more visibility to Rubio's voting patterns...and it got his staff kicked out of his Tampa satellite office near the intersection of Kennedy and West Shore in Tampa...not that Rubio ever actually showed up there anyway. —Kate Bradshaw
