Rubio: ‘The Difference Between Speaker Ryan and Myself Is I Signed a Pledge’

‘What I’m not going to do is sit here for the next six months and take shots at the Republican nominee’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
TAPPER: “I interviewed speaker Ryan and he said he couldn’t endorse Donald Trump right now. Is that what you’re saying?”
RUBIO: “The difference between Speaker Ryan and myself is I signed a pledge and said I would support the Republican nominee and that’s what I intend do. And the best thing I can do to do that is support those out there running for the conservative cause whether it’s to keep conservative majority in the Senate or in the House for that matter and across the country at different levels. And what I don’t want to do and what I’m not going to do is sit here for the next six months and take shots at the Republican nominee. I respect the will of the voters and I believe he’s earned the opportunity to make his case to the American people without having people in his own party taking shots at him every day.”
