Rubio: Just kidding, I’m not actually running for president
Last week, we wrote about how Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)—who is not running for president—responded to a letter from the FEC questioning his acceptance of excessive donations by transferring the money to his general election account. This seemed a bit counterintuitive, since, again, Marco Rubio is not running for president. Legally, he’s allowed to hold onto the money until he’s definitively not the nominee, as long as he keeps his campaign “suspended” and not closed, earning interest all the way. Well, he must not have liked the attention, because in a filing dated yesterday, he let the FEC know that he would be returning the donations from his general election account. Because he is not running for president. Just as he wasn’t running for president last week.
