Rubio: Florida Winner Will Be Nominee

It’s all down to the voting in Florida. The state’s freshman—and rumored vice presidential favorite—Marco Rubio said Tuesday that the winner of Florida’s primary will go on to win the Republican nomination. “Florida is … a mini-America,” he said on CNN’s Starting Point. “Virtually every issue we want them to be conversant on and convincing on is a discussion we’ve had in Florida.” Despite rumors that Rubio could be a potential running mate, he said he is “not going to be the vice presidential nominee.” He has not endorsed any candidate yet. Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Rick Scott cast his vote early Tuesday in Tallahassee—but he refused to say whom he voted for. “It’s a secret ballot, fortunately,” he said.
