“If in four to five years, if I do a good job as vice president—I’m sorry, as senator—I’ll have the chance to do all sorts of things.”
Washington journalists’ ears perked up Thursday morning when Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) made that misstatement during his remarks at a breakfast sponsored by National Journal and the University of Phoenix.
Rubio said Wednesday night, and reiterated Thursday morning, that he did not want to become vice president “now or maybe ever.”
Here more other highlights from Rubio’s remarks, courtesy of the twitterati who attended the breakfast.
