Just out this morning, Rep. David Jolly stated on CNN that Marco Rubio will be running again this year. The speculation that his career in politics might not be so over after all has been reaching fever pitch recently, and Jolly seems to be saying that the rumors are true:

It was just two days ago that Rubio said he would “reconsider” his earlier decision not to run. As you can see in the video, Rep. Jolly was discussing the fact that he himself might fun for Rubio’s Senate seat, something he’ll announce formally at noon today. Certainly his decision would be affected by Rubio’s.
UPDATE: The walkback …
Now Jolly's spox tells @TalKopan "Clarifying Jolly has no actual knowledge of a Rubio decision"-Said on CNN Marco is saying he is getting in
