Sen. Rubio was just elected in November 2010 to the senate. I am glad he is not even thinking about “If asked” a running mate to the up coming Republican Presidential Nominee. Sen. Marco Rubio truly does have Florida‘s best intentions at heart….
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that he would not be on any Republican ticket in 2012.
Since his election last November, Rubio has been mentioned frequently as a potential vice-presidential candidate for a variety of reasons: He’s young, considered to be telegenic, the son of Cuban exiles and from a tightly contested state with a large number of electoral votes.
“I don’t want to be the vice president of the United States,” Rubio said. “I want to be a senator, and I want to be a senator from Florida. I think in the United States Senate I can have an impact on these major issues that we’re facing.”
Rubio did say he thought President Barack Obama is “beatable” in 2012.
“Anybody’s beatable in American politics,” Rubio said. “I learned that myself.”
