Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) “on Sunday ruled out the possibility that he would be on the presidential ticket in 2012,” Roll Call reports.
“I’m not going to be the candidate for president or vice president,” the tea party-backed Florida lawmaker said on “Fox News Sunday.”
When asked Sunday “whether he is ready for a presidential or vice presidential campaign, he appeared to leave himself some wiggle room.”
“As far as whether we’re prepared, that’s why we have elections in this country,” he said. “I have a lot of confidence and faith in our republic. Our voters almost always get it right, more often than not, quite frankly. And through that election process is where we come to learn whether someone is prepared and whether someone has to answer that question for themselves.”
