It looks like Rubio will reenter the race for his senate seat in Florida. Congressman David Jolly (R-Fla.) had been running for the seat to replace Rubio. On Friday he dropped out of that race to clear the way for Rubio. Jolly will now run for re-election in his Congressional district.
“I have been running for 10 months, we’ve been polling out front,” Jolly said. “Marco is saying he is getting in,” he added, apparently referencing rumors to that effect and not indicating Rubio had told him as much.
Some Senators on Capitol Hill also believe Rubio will be returning to the race although Rubio has not announced any chance in plans, yet.
“Obviously, I take very seriously everything that’s going on, not just in Orlando but in our country. I’ve enjoyed my service here a lot. So I’ll go home later this week and I’ll have some time with my family and then, if there’s been a change in our status, I’ll be sure to let everyone know.”
It certainly sounds like Rubio has reconsidered leaving the Senate.
