Sen. Marco Rubio Is Ready To Be President

Hes a 42-year-old freshman senator, but when asked by Jonathan Karl on This Week if hes ready to be president, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida answered without hesitation.

I do but I think thats true for multiple other people that would want to run I mean, Ill be 43 this month, but the other thing that perhaps people dont realize, Ive served now in public office for the better part of 14 years, said Rubio. Most importantly, I think a president has to have a clear vision of where the country needs to go and clear ideas about how to get it there and I think were very blessed in our party to have a number of people that fit that criteria.

The Florida senator who was once considered a 2016 Republican front runner has seen his star fade in recent days, according to at least one recent New Hampshire poll.
