(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told CNSNews.com in a video interview in the Capitol following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday night that the Republican vice presidential nominee “isn’t going to be me.”

CNSNews.com asked Rubio: “There’s obviously been talk about your being on a presidential ticket. Would you consider that?”

Rubio responded: “Well, I’ve answered that so many times I don’t know how many--I don’t have anything else to add to what I’ve already said like 5,000 times about it.”

CNSNews.com asked: “Would you turn it down?”

Rubio said: “I’m not going to add anything. I mean, honestly, I’ve answered that so many times already I don’t know how else to answer it, other than to tell you that I look forward to working hard on behalf of the nominee. They’re going to choose a good vice president, we’re going to win the White House, but it isn’t going to be me."
