Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio, continuing to play down talk of his possible selection as Mitt Romney's running mate, on Sunday tried to shift the speculation to another Sunshine State Republican: former Gov. Jeb Bush.
Bush recently said he hoped Rubio would accept a potential offer from presumptive Republican presidential nominee Romney to serve on the ticket, calling it "an extraordinary combination." Rubio said he feels Bush should do the same.
"That's very nice of Jeb. I hope he'll say yes if future President Romney asks him," the senator said on CNN's State of the Union. "I think he'd be a fantastic vice president."
