Jolly added during an appearance on CNN's "New Day" that he plans to tell his constituents at noon on Friday whether he'll stay in the Senate race himself or seek reelection to the House.
A spokesperson for Jolly later clarified that he "has no actual knowledge of a Rubio decision."
An aide indicated Friday that Rubio still plans to spend time with family while reevaluating his decision.
“Obviously, I take very seriously everything that’s going on — not just Orlando, but in our country,” Rubio said Wednesday. “I enjoy my service here a lot. So I’ll go home later this week, and I’ll have some time with my family, and then if there’s been a change in our status, I’ll be sure to let everyone know.”
