Republican Sen. Marco Rubio is in need of a new Tampa office thanks to the work of left-wing protesters, who regularly staged loud demonstrations to the point that it was causing problems for other tenants in the building, according to The Tampa Bay Times.

The owner of the office building reportedly notified Rubio on Feb. 1 that they would not be renewing his lease, due to the protests, which were becoming a “a security concern.”

According to the Times, other tenants in the building were beginning to fear for their safety due to the protests, which were organized by Indivisible and other left-wing activist groups.

Rubio opted not to host a town hall late last month because of the likelihood that liberal activists would hijack the event. (RELATED: Leaked Audio Reveals Anti-Trump Forces Manufacturing Hostile Town Hall)

“They are not town halls anymore,” he said. “What these groups really want is for me to schedule a public forum, they then organize three, four, five, six hundred liberal activists in the two counties or wherever I am in the state.”
