The new Florida senator did a round of radio interviews in Florida today, telling one talk show host that he wouldn't accept an offer to run as vice president -- should someone offer.
"No," Rubio said to Trey Radel in Fort Myers. "I don't spend anytime thinking about it. I'm flattered people would ask that question cause I think that they mean it in a complimentary way. But by the same token, I recognize that this job is the one job that I wanted. I wanted to be a U.S. Senator, not a vice presidential candidate, not a presidential candidate. I didn't run to use it as a stepping stone. I ran because I wanted to be a U.S. Senator."
Rubio repeated his remarks from last week that the buzz over his future prospects is a media creation, adding that, "in a couple of weeks they'll be talking about someone else."
