Rubio: No ‘eject button’ if he runs for president

(CNN) – Marco Rubio said that if someone wants to be president, they should fully commit to just that, adding that candidates shouldn't try to hold their congressional seats while pursuing the White House.

The Florida Republican said in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC that, should he decide to launch a 2016 campaign, he won't run simultaneously for re-election for his seat in the U.S. Senate.

'The 20th century is gone': Rubio makes apparent dig at Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire speech

(CNN) – Sen. Marco Rubio used his first visit this election cycle to New Hampshire, a key primary state, to take apparent shots at a potential 2016 presidential opponent - Hillary Clinton.

The Floridian was speaking Friday night to fellow Republicans at the Granite State’s “Freedom Founders” dinner, an annual event held by the Rockingham County Republican Committee.

Although not referring to Clinton by name, Rubio said: “They're threatening to nominate someone now who wants to take us to the past, to an era that is gone and is never coming back. The 20th century is gone. We live in the 21st century, a time of extraordinary challenges but also extraordinary opportunities. And that's where our party must step in.”

Eyeing ’16, Rubio and Paul to speak at RNC

Memphis, Tennessee (CNN) - Sen. Marco Rubio will emphasize the need for the federal government to rethink how it addresses key programs by embracing “free market principles” and new technology in a speech to Republican leaders and activists meeting here this week to discuss political strategy.

The Florida GOP senator’s address is just one of several he has delivered on the topic of reform – already, he has spoken about how to transform education, innovation and poverty. And it is a subject Rubio will carry to New Hampshire on Friday and back to Washington, DC next week when he will appear at the National Press Club to talk about “retirement security in the 21st century and propose new reforms to strengthen entitlement programs,” the senator’s spokesman Alex Conant told CNN.
