Days after dropping out the 2016 presidential race, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) announced that he does not plan to seek reelection in the U.S. Senate. He also asserted he will not be “anybody’s vice president.”

“I’m not interested in being vice president,” Rubio told reporters on Thursday. “I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way. I’m not gonna be vice president. I’m not running for Governor of Florida. I’m going to finish out my term in the Senate and over the next ten months we are going to work really hard here — we have some things we want to achieve — and then I’ll be a private citizen in January.”

To make it perfectly clear, Rubio clarified, “No, I’m not running for reelection to the Senate.”
