Marco Rubio weighs in on ’12 prez field

in Uncategorized by

Rubio, on who he’d support for POTUS in ’12: “Well, there are a lot of people out there that we’re lucky enough that are in our movement that potentially are interested in doing that. … I think [ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney (R)] was a great candidate the last time around. You have the person I supported the last time, [ex-AR Gov.] Mike Huckabee [R], who could potentially still run again. You have [ex-AK] Governor [Sarah] Palin [R], who is traveling the country and giving speeches. You have [MN Gov.] Tim Pawlenty [R], who spoke.”

Cavuto: “But do you have a favorite?”

Rubio: “Oh, gosh, I mean, we’re so far away from that. Number one, I would never be as presumptuous as to suggest to you that there’s someone out there that should be the person this far ahead of schedule.”
