FILE - In this March 14, 2016, file photo, then-Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., speaks during a campaign rally at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Fla. Rubio is facing intense pressure to run for re-election to his Florida Senate seat, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell taking the lead in a campaign to get him to reconsider his plans to retire. Republicans fear that if Rubio doesn’t run for a second term they could lose his seat.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Sen. Marco Rubio says he will be campaigning with Republican candidates to keep GOP control of the House and Senate.

Those candidates include his good friend Florida Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, who's running for Rubio's U.S. Senate seat, but Rubio won't be doing the same for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Speaking in West Palm Beach Friday, Rubio says Trump would be better served by having people out there campaigning and speaking on his behalf that more fully embrace what he stands for.

Rubio says he has clear policy differences with Trump, but he's not going to be taking daily "pot shots" at Trump because he's not going to help Hillary Clinton.

Rubio says he's going to focus on helping his colleagues in the Congress, not on the presidential race.
