Senator and failed presidential candidate Marco Rubio said he’s not angling for a 2020 presidential run by deciding to run for re-election to the Senate. Call me skeptical.
“I didn’t run for the Senate to run for president again,” Rubio will say in a pre-taped segment for CBS’ “Face the Nation” that will air on Sunday.
Right, okay. Rubio then argued that this is what political experts would advise against.
“Any political expert would tell you this is not the right way to do it — expose yourself in another election, in a very unpredictable, to say the least, election cycle after saying you weren’t going to do it. It’s a tough election in a strong swing state,” he said.
