Donald Trump got some bad news this week when it was revealed that Marco Rubio has picked up three key endorsements from establishment Republicans recently.
According to Daily Caller, Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Rep. Cresent Hardy of Nevada have all thrown their support towards Rubio. This came days after Rubio took second place behind Trump in South Carolina, and he’s hoping to keep his momentum going.
“Like myself, Marco came from humble beginnings and worked very hard to get to where he is today. Marco lived the American Dream, and he will ensure that each and every one of us can do the same,” Tillis said in a statement Monday. “I’m supporting Marco Rubio for president because he has an unmatched ability to inspire and uplift the American people.”
“I think it comes down to this – he’s strong, he’s also informed, he’s conservative, and he’s electable, and he can unite the party, and you can’t ask for much more than that,” Pawlenty said on CNN’s “New Day” Monday morning. “I think he’s got the total package, and I think he’s going to bring forward the strongest voice, the strongest image, and really the most thoughtful and informed strong view about how to move this country forward from a conservative perspective.”
Hardy announced his support of Rubio during a rally on Sunday night.
“Thank you for the opportunity to stand before you and say that I endorse Senator Marco Rubio,” Hardy said. “I think Marco is the right guy, the right person for me. I think he is the right person for this state. And I think he is the right person for this country.”
It’s sad that the GOP establishment continues to try to make things more difficult for Trump at every turn. SHARE this story if you are STILL supporting Trump!
