Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that “vice presidents can’t simply decide not to certify” the result of an election, distancing himself from the repeated claims of former President Donald Trump.
Mr. Trump has insisted that former Vice President Mike Pence could have changed the results of the 2020 election.
“I just don’t think a vice president has that power,” Mr. Rubio said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“If President Trump runs for reelection, I believe he would defeat Joe Biden — and I don’t want Kamala Harris to have the power as vice president to overturn that election,” he said. “That is the same thing that I concluded in January of 2021.”
Mr. Pence scored headlines last week after delivering remarks before the Federalist Society in which he said, “President Trump is wrong.
“I had no right to overturn the election,” Mr. Pence said.
