Skip to comments.Report: Mitt Romney to Endorse Sen. Marco Rubio for President
Posted on 02/21/2016 4:05:00 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will endorse Sen. Marco Rubio, the Huffington Post reports. The details of the endorsement are being worked out.
It's ironic since Romney, who was largely an absentee governor in the last nine months of his administration, is endorsing someone who didn't bother showing up for work in the Senate that much.
"Romney spent the day in Utah on Saturday and could potentially be in position to bestow his blessing upon Rubio before Tuesday's Nevada Republican caucuses-a contest that Romney won easily in both 2008 and 2012."
"Romney's backing will provide Rubio with the highest-profile endorsement of the 2016 race and is the clearest signal yet that the party's establishment is ready to coalesce around the Florida senator as its last best chance to defeat GOP front-runner Donald Trump."
Somehow that comment Romney made about 47 percent of Americans being deadbeats will be resurrected. I can't see how much good his endorsement will do for Rubio, other than as a way of coalescing around a candidate the Republican establishment can live with.

He’s dead, Jim.
Well this changes everything-— there are soo many fanatic Romney fans— Rubio is sure to win now-— /s
I hard the Romney fans held their convention in a phone booth
Does it for me.
Hail to the chief...
All over but, the voting...
hard = heard
Why on earth would a LOSER endorse anyone?????????????
Most of them are wearing black pants, white button down shirts and riding bicycles with helmets.
Rubio denied this today. We’ll see if he’s telling the truth. I’ll bet Romney is already working behind closed doors. The looozer.
They found one!?!?!?!?
Oh what a surprise, Mr. Establishment endorsing Mr. Establishment....
If so, Trumps numbers will go up a few more points.
Why would anyone want Romney’s endorsement?
Say what you will but we are getting Rubio shoved down our throats. He will be the nominee.
If Milt was smart and really wanted to help Mario he’d endorse Trump.
Don’t know if it is true but I hope so. I want to see Ann Coulter turn inside out over her two loves being in different camps.
The Mitt of Death. Go away already.
maybe Rubio will move from Gang of Eight to “self-deportation,” but at the end of the day, he’s still for amnesty.
Bet me a dollar.
