( - Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told in a video interview in the Capitol following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday night that the Republican vice presidential nominee “isn’t going to be me.” asked Rubio: “There’s obviously been talk about your being on a presidential ticket. Would you consider that?”

Rubio responded: “Well, I’ve answered that so many times I don’t know how many--I don’t have anything else to add to what I’ve already said like 5,000 times about it.” asked: “Would you turn it down?”

Rubio said: “I’m not going to add anything. I mean, honestly, I’ve answered that so many times already I don’t know how else to answer it, other than to tell you that I look forward to working hard on behalf of the nominee. They’re going to choose a good vice president, we’re going to win the White House, but it isn’t going to be me."
