Rubio: I'll vote for nominee but it's not going to be Trump



Marco Rubio was the first candidate to say last night that he would support for Donald Trump if Trump is the nominee, stepping on his #NeverTrump message of late. Today, Rubio was pressed on his answer on a Kentucky radio show.

"Well, for me, I’m never voting for Donald Trump in the Republican primary … That's the point that I was making."

The Fox News question was about supporting the nominee, not voting in the primary.

"I get it. I get the question," Rubio said when the radio host pressed him. "I’m going to vote for the nominee. It's not going to be Donald Trump. I don’t even want to think about it right now other than to say to you it's not going to happen."
