-- Former GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio publicly and unequivocally said today that he does not want to be considered as Donald Trump's running mate, writing in a post on Facebook that he still has reservations about Trump’s campaign and policies.
Trump will be “best served” by someone who fully embraces his campaign and his policies, he said in a post on Facebook.
“I have never sought, will not seek and do not want to be considered for Vice President,” he said in the Facebook post.
Rubio wrote that he will now turn his efforts to helping conservatives get elected down the ballot in Florida and across the country.
This is the first time Rubio has explicitly stated he does not want to be considered for vice president. Immediately after he dropped out of the race in March, he said he wasn't going to be vice president and was planning on finishing out his Senate term.
"I have no intention of being vice president," Rubio reiterated in an interview with Univision. "I have said it clearly."
"I’m always looking for a way to serve the nation, but I don’t believe that it will be as vice president," he said.
