WASHINGTON — Sen. Marco Rubio offered a rare glimpse Tuesday of his approach to a decision many here assume he’s already made: Whether or not to run for president in 2016.
Rubio suggested, at least, that he’d given the matter some thought in an interview with BuzzFeed.
“I really believe that if I do the best job I can in the Senate, then in a couple of years I’ll be in a position to make a decision about whether I want to run for reelection, leave politics and give someone else a shot, or run for some other position,” Rubio said.
Rubio also suggested that he has contemplated the grind of the “long and gruesome” campaign, and that the decision won’t be an easy one.
“You only get that big plane at the end,” Rubio said. “The beginning of it, you’re in a rent-a-car in Iowa, and New Hampshire, and South Carolina, you’re meeting the same ten people over and over again and they’re still undecided.”
