If elected president, [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] would not outlaw prostitution.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, Rubio claimed that while he is “anti-prostitution,” he is more concerned with shrinking the government and doesn’t want to federalize a state issue.

“I’m not talking about federalizing the issue. I want to shrink the government, not grow it,” the Florida senator explained. “Suffice it to say, I wish Nevada would make it illegal, but it’s their decision to make.”

“My understanding is that [Elko County, NV] is the only county in America where it’s legal.”

“I think prostitution victimizes the people who are participating in it. That’s my opinion, but I’m not calling to make it a federal offense,” Rubio continued. “I think you can be against something but still say I don’t want the federal government involved in federalizing something.”
