But, during an appearance today in Palm Beach Gardens, Rubio very bluntly announced that “I’m not going to be the vice president.”

Outspoken Romney support Ann Coulter recently advised against picking Rubio as a running mate, opining that such a move would be “pandering to Hispanics.” Coulter also noted that Rubio has time yet to be a viable national candidate, observing that the Cuban, Miami-born politician is “very young, and also when you run as a Republican for president or vice president, the non-Fox media is going to go after you like gangbusters and it’s good to have somebody who is tested.”
