WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — 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.
