Senator Jim DeMint Endorses Marco Rubio for Senate
Washington, DC - U.S. Senate candidate and former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio received the endorsement of Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC). During a Washington, DC press conference, DeMint highlighted why he believes Rubio is the conservative Republicans have been looking for.
"Marco Rubio is the most impressive conservative leader I have met in a long time, a natural leader with an inspiring personal story and an even more inspiring vision for Florida and America," said DeMint. "There is no question Marco Rubio will be a big part of the Republican Party's future, but if we are to defeat the forces of Big Government now controlling Washington, he needs to be a big part of the Party's present."
"He has the skills and ideas we need to rebuild our party, reform our government and renew our nation, and I am proud to offer my full support in his upcoming election," added DeMint.
Accepting DeMint's endorsement, Rubio said, "Throughout his career, Senator DeMint has stood up for working families, taxpayers and entrepreneurs. He is one of the nation's leading conservatives, a true hero for taxpayers everywhere and I am honored to have him stand with me."
