Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) says he is not running for president in 2012, ABC News reports.
ABC News spent several days with Rubio in Washington and Florida, getting exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to a 39-year-old Republican whom many conservatives would like to see run for president.
After persistent questioning, Rubio ruled ruled out a run for president; at least in 2012.
"I am not running for president in 2012," Rubio told me.
He was “less definitive in his response to media speculation that he is the odds-on choice to be the GOP vice presidential nominee.”
