Marco Rubio Denies Plans For White House 2012 Run

Senator Marco Rubio is talking about the buzz that he could make a run for the White House in 2012.

But Thursday night the junior senator from Florida is saying no way.

“I’m not running for any office in 2012,” Rubio said. “I don’t want it, I’m focused on the job of US. senator. That’s what I ran for, that’s what I want to be. I want to be a US. senator from Florida and quite frankly if I can I want to be the best person who has ever been US senator from Florida and again you can only do that if you’re focused on that job.”

Senator Rubio said he does continue to embrace the Tea Party movement even though he didn’t join the party’s caucus.
