A political group tied to Miami Mayor Francis Suarez is buying social media ads in key presidential primary states, fueling speculation that the Republican may be mulling a White House bid.

Suarez disclosed in paperwork filed with the Miami city clerk in April that he was raising money for the group, which he listed as a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization.
