On Tuesday’s broadcast of “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) discussed the possibilities of a 2016 presidential run. He explained that he wasn’t prepared to announce a decision on that front, but he said his resume was superior to then-Sen. Barack Obama’s when he made his run in 2008.
“I think it’s an interesting question. As I said, I’m a U.S. Senator now,” Rubio said. “I’m focused on this job. I’ll have a decision to make at the end of the year. Your point is well taken. I certainly would line up my resume against his at this stage in his career, having served in state government – not a full-time job, but I did serve in state government, Speaker of the House, majority leader, majority whip there. I actually served two years on local government as well. But as I said, I think our Republican Party by and large has a number of people including many who don’t want to run for president that are much more qualified to hold that office than the man who is there now.”
