Marco Rubio also rules out VP run
"I'm not going to be the vice presidential nominee," he told Sean Hannity. "I'm focused on this. And it's important that I have that attitude, too, because otherwise I won't be able to do this job well. ... Florida deserves to have a full-time senator."
Rubio used the forum to talk about the national debt and reforming Social Security, saying it should begin with people of his generation. "Here's what the critics are going to say: 'We don't have enough time to do all of that.' That's not true. These ideas here have been around for a long time. Everybody here knows exactly what needs to be done. The problem is they don't want to do it."
The interview was billed as Rubio's first live national TV appearance since the election. "I'm glad to be back," Rubio said.
