Marco Rubio speaks with reporters in Daytona Beach



DAYTONA BEACH - Going out on a limb here to say don't expect to see Marco Rubio on the campaign trail soon with Donald Trump.

"I have my own campaign to run," Rubio told the Tampa Bay Times after an event Tuesday in Daytona Beach, where Trump will appear today. "So we’re going to set our campaign schedule, we’re going to follow it. If there’s an opportunity and it makes sense, we’ll explore it. Obviously that hasn’t presented itself yet. 

"We’re open to it," Rubio continued. "We’ll see if the right opportunity presents itself, but we’ve got to set our campaign schedule and our official schedule and sometimes it just won’t overlap.”
