Marco Rubio Says He’s Leaving Government

At the end of his Senate term

Marco Rubio said Thursday that he plans to leave the government after the end of his Senate term, and that he’s not interested in being anyone’s Vice President.

“I’m not going to be Vice President,” the Florida Senator told reporters Thursday. “I’m not running for governor of Florida, I’m going to finish out my term in the Senate over the next 10 months… and then I’ll be a private citizen in January.”

Rubio suspended his presidential campaign on March 15 after losing his home state of Florida to businessman Donald Trump.
