Marco Rubio is currently 5 points ahead of Democrat Pat Murphy in the race for Senate in Florida according to a PPP poll out last week. He has lead the race in every poll released since July. He tells Florida radio he's gonna stay a senator, and not run for Pres in 2020
Marco Rubio on Wednesday seemed to shut the door on mounting a presidential bid in 2020, reiterating that he plans to serve out an entire six-year term if reelected to the Senate.
Critics, including Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy, have said Rubio just wants to use the Senate as a stepping stone to another presidential run. Rubio pushed back, insisting he plans to serve his entire term.
"Not only am I going to serve for six years, I've been honest with people, the things I want to achieve, some may take longer than six years to achieve. So that's what my focus is on, 100 percent,” Rubio said on News Radio 970 WFLA, according to CNN.
"If I wanted to run for something else, I wouldn't have run for Senate," Rubio said Wednesday. "My opponent keeps saying I'm gonna run for president. If I wanted to run for president in four years, I would have just stayed out of this race and started running on November the 9, which a lot of other people are going to do.
