Rubio to support Rex Tillerson's nomination

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida says he'll support Rex Tillerson's nomination for secretary of state.

This morning, Rubio posted the following statement on Facebook:

I believe the president is entitled to significant deference when it comes to his choices for the cabinet. I also believe given the uncertainty surrounding the future direction of our foreign policy that a higher degree of scrutiny is justified in evaluating whoever is nominated to serve as secretary of state.
