CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio says he met with Gov. Brian Sandoval during his northern Nevada campaign tour, but the two didn’t discuss an endorsement.

Rubio said he visited the Republican governor Tuesday morning, before holding a town hall at a community center in Carson City and making campaign stops in other rural Nevada towns.

The Florida senator said the two talked about “normal stuff” including how the campaign was going. Rubio said he’s known Sandoval for a little while and likes him very much.

Sandoval told the Las Vegas Sun that Rubio is an “impressive guy” and that he didn’t seek an endorsement. The newspaper reported their meeting took place at the governor’s mansion and lasted 90 minutes.

Sandoval previously met with Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush in Nevada.
