This week Marco Rubio received two endorsements from prominent politicians and former presidential candidates. The first is former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, and the second is Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. These are major get’s for Rubio and I will tell you why.
Since Rubio announced, conservative personalities and his fellow presidential candidates have gone after Marco’s record, calling him an establishment man and that he is for full throated amnesty. Something that is false but has been peddled by some as the truth.
The records of both Jindal and Santorum, respectively as a US senator and a governor, are very conservative. From Santorum being the only legislator to pass welfare reform and sponsoring and shepherding every pro-life bill that has become law. And Jindal’s accomplishment in cutting Louisiana’s taxes six times in eight years, including making Louisiana’s property tax one of the lowest in the US at 0.18%, and after being appointed secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals were he cut $400 million in medicare expenses. And the two of them stand firm on the issues of pro-life, pro-marriage and for years have been outspoken leaders in defense of our Constitutional freedoms.
Their respective endorsement of Rubio is a firm indicator of Jindal’s and Santorum’s belief that Marco Rubio is the most qualified in the current field of candidates, and that he is the right conservative with the message and vision to lead. Since Iowa, people have certainly given him another look; and now with the endorsement of weathered and well known conservative fighters and reformers, still undecided voters and supporters of former candidates are certain to gravitate toward Marco. And there is the possibility that they will encourage others to switch their support.
Going into New Hampshire and South Carolina, the momentum is firmly behind Marco Rubio. And if conservatives continue to endorse and lineup behind him in the days to come, and advocate for him, as Rick and Bobby have done. Than we may soon see Marco clinch the nomination.
