Sen. Marco Rubio said Wednesday he will seek re-election to the Senate, reversing a pledge he made a year ago to either assume the presidency or return to private life in Florida, instantly transforming an already competitive race and improving the chances that Republicans can maintain the Senate majority.
Rubio discussed his decision in an interview with the Miami Herald, in which he said he was compelled to reconsider his decision because of the need for the Senate to “act as a check and balance on the excess of the president.”
