Rubio decries ‘intolerance’ against same-sex marriage opponents

Washington (CNN) – Citing a “growing intolerance” against opponents of same-sex marriage, Sen. Marco Rubio argued that those who advocate same-sex marriage need to be more respectful of those who oppose it.

“Supporting the definition of marriage as one man and one woman is not anti-gay. It's pro-traditional marriage,” the Florida Republican said in a speech at Catholic University. “And if support for traditional marriage is bigotry, then Barack Obama was a bigot until just before the 2012 election.”

Jeb Bush, Rubio lay low on border crisis

(CNN) – Three Republicans with lofty aspirations nearly had their political careers derailed over risky positions on immigration.

Inside Politics Speed Read: Rubio expresses doubts on climate change, gives Hillary an ‘F’

Marco Rubio returns: He lost a fair amount of buzz after the bipartisan and sweeping immigration reform bill he helped usher through the Senate. But the young GOP senator from Florida apparently still sees himself as a potential presidential contender.

Rubio was candid when asked by ABC’s Jonathan Karl on Sunday’s “This Week” whether he thinks he’s ready to be president.

“I do,” he said. “I think that’s true for multiple other people that would want to run.”

Rubio maintained that he has the necessary experience for the job.
