On Wednesday Sen. Marco Rubio was asked about a unity ticket during an MSNBC town hall and during a similar event on Fox News.

On MSNBC Rubio said the idea wasn’t realistic:

I think that’s kind of House of Cards stuff.

It looks good on TV, it doesn’t ever work that way. Bottom line is, you know, this process is going to play itself out.

Rubio then went on to emphasize he is working hard to win in Florida.

During the  Fox News event, Megyn Kelly asked Rubio if he would team up with Cruz. Rubio again belittled the idea:

“I haven’t talked to anybody about that. I’m not interested in that. That’s the kind of drama that makes it interesting on TV to speculate about. Those kinds of things rarely work. I can just tell you I’m a candidate for president.

So much for a Cruz/Rubio unity ticket.
