Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is getting kicked out of his office, literally.

The owner of the Tampa office building where the Republican lawmaker and his staff operate their official office will not renew his lease, citing frequent, disruptive rallies by protestors, TampaBay.com reported.

Rubio ran against President Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary last year, but dropped out before the election.

Rubio staff, who have been operating on a month-to-month lease since December, have until Friday to clear out. The tenant notified him Feb. 1.

Rubio does not have another space lined up yet, as negotiations with another building recently fell through, according the the article. In the interim he will assist constituents via phone.

"We are actively looking for new office space, and our goal is to remain accessible and continue providing prompt and efficient service to all Floridians," Rubio spokeswoman Christina Mandreucci said in statement to TampaBay.com. "Until we find a permanent new home in the Tampa Bay area, we will have a representative from our Tampa Bay office available to assist constituents on a daily basis and reachable at 1-866-630-7106."
