Polls for 2016 presidential election: Marco Rubio set to endorse Ted Cruz for President in coming days
The Republican presidential nomination race has narrowed a lot compared to a couple of weeks ago. From one and half dozen Republican presidential hopefuls, to merely three, the nomination process seems to have come a long way.
One of the toughest critics of GOP front runner Donald Trump, Marco Rubio might be out of the nomination race, but he holds lots of importance in the nomination process. Whoever he supports is going to get the support of his fans across the US. Mind you, he has the support of many a people across the nation.
Thus far he hasnâ€™t said a word as to whom he will support. Nonetheless there are signs that Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) is nearing a decision to endorse fellow Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) for president. A report in Politico confirms the development.
The Politico reports citing informed sources in the Marco Rubio camp says that Cruz first has to ask Rubio for his endorsement. Then both sides would have to agree that the endorsement will make a difference in their common goal of defeating GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
It must be kept in mind that Rubio had repeatedly accused Cruz of lying on the campaign trail but otherwise has a positive relationship with the Texan, said Thursday that Cruz is the â€œonly conservative left in the race.â€ With Rubioâ€™s departure from the race after failing to secure a primary victory in his home state of Florida on Tuesday, the GOP establishment seems to be shifting their support to Cruz.
