Rubio: Presidential candidates should only run for one office at a time

(CNN) – Sen. Marco Rubio appeared to take a jab at Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday, saying candidates shouldn't run for the presidency while trying to hold onto their Senate seat.

"I think by and large, when you choose to do something as big as that, you’ve really got to be focused on that and not have an exit strategy,” the Florida Republican said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show.

The Michigan Republican said last week that he isn’t running for re-election this fall, after serving a little over a decade in office, the last few years as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
