Marco Rubio Not Being Vetted For VP Seat

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Republicans, Romney, Rubio, Veep

Rubio has said in the past that he’s not interested in the position right now, and I think that’s a smart play. This is going to be an ugly campaign and Rubio doesn’t have much to gain by hitching his wagon to Romney’s star right now.

Here’s more from ABC:

Even before the Republicans chose a presidential nominee it was widely assumed that Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., would be at the top of anybody’s list of vice presidential candidates. The reasons are obvious: Not only is he young, charismatic and wildly popular with conservatives, but he could also help Republicans win a key state (Florida) and make inroads with Hispanics.

But knowledgeable Republican sources tell me that Rubio is not being vetted by Mitt Romney’s vice presidential search team. He has not been asked to complete any questionnaires or been asked to turn over any financial documents typically required of potential vice presidential candidates.

Again, a smart play by Rubio for not showing interest. He’s too young and I’m sure he’s well aware that, after Obama came out of nowhere to win, he may be able to repeat that strategy in 2016 if Romney loses and the Dem field is filled with dinosaurs.

More as it develops…
