Last week, when rumors started circulating about Rubio’s change of heart, Rep. David Jolly decided drop out of the Florida Senate race and run for reelection for his House seat instead. When asked why, Jolly candidly said, “Marco is saying he is getting in.”

Perhaps Rubio changed his mind after realizing how vulnerable the Senate is this election year. His colleagues have indicated they want him to run, as well as amajority of Florida Republicans.

In an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Wednesday, Rubio candidly said he’d “changed his mind.”

Rubio added that he’s running because, no matter who wins the White House in November, the Senate will play an important role as a check and balance for the “bad ideas” of the president.
