Rubio’s frustration with the Senate, long an open secret among his colleagues, has personal and political aspects. The freshman lawmaker “feel[s] guilty” about the amount of time he spends away from his young family in Miami, as he wrote in his memoir. The job doesn't pay particularly well relative to what Rubio could make in the private sector. Democrats have thwarted most of his major legislative efforts, and his one big attempt to reach across the aisle, the Gang of Eight immigration bill, cost him support among the same tea-party voters who had swept him into office.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio made the decision to run for President over running for reelection of his Senate seat in the 2016 election. Florida law prevents a candidate from appearing on the ballot twice. If Rubio was to get the Republican Presidential Nomination or Vice Presidential Nomination he would not be allowed to run for Senate. If Rubio was to lose the Republican nomination and was not chosen to be a running mate on the GOP Presidential ticket he could run for his Senate seat. Rubio does not want to do this. Basically putting all his marbles in the basket of getting on the Republican ticket. The question is why would someone opt out of keeping their job? The National Review may have the answer for you.
The article goes on to say that if Marco Rubio was to lose his bid for the White House some FLorida operatives believe he would run for Governor of Florida in 2018.
