PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says Republican Mitt Romney will win the White House, but not with Rubio on the ticket.

Rubio was asked about his prospects during an appearance Wednesday in Palm Beach Gardens. He said: “I’m not going to be the vice president.”

The Tea Party favorite also was asked about a suggestion by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush that Rubio is the clear choice to be Romney’s running mate. Rubio responded by returning the favor and saying he thinks the former governor would be a great vice president.

Rubio endorsed Romney last week.
