Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says he has sent Senate leaders a letter calling for the use of force to remove Libyan leader Moammar Marco Rubio, Moammar Gadhafi, LibyaGadhafi from power, adding that he does not rule out the use of ground troops, Politico reports.

“I don’t think you go into a military engagement saying what you will not do,” Rubio said on “Fox News Sunday.” “The United States has plenty of capabilities both overt and covert to help us in this goal of getting rid of Moammar Gadhafi.”

Pressed on whether he’d support ground troops, Rubio said that the Libyan rebels didn’t want them, and that it wasn’t “the ideal scenario.”
