Thanks for standing with me all of these years.
Your steadfast support and commitment to fighting important conservative battles has meant so much to Karen and me.
As you may have heard, I announced tonight that I will be ending my Presidential campaign. While the results were not what we had hoped, the experience of running for President was tremendously gratifying and something I won't soon forget.
And as Karen and I discussed leaving the Presidential race, we also talked about who we should support now that I am stepping aside.
There are many qualified, conservative candidates in the race for the White House.
But when it comes to the issues that we care about the most - restoring the American dream for hardworking families, standing up for the rights of the unborn, protecting our nation's security, and fighting for international religious freedom - we believe Marco Rubio's position are right on, and he had earned our endorsement.
We have taken a long, close look at all of the candidates. Running for President provides you with a unique look into the candidates' positions and temperament.
Marco Rubio is the right Republican to lead our party and our country.
His policies will revive our manufacturing sector, help our families thrive and defeat ISIS.
It is time to coalesce around the strongest candidate who will stand up for conservative values, be a statesman on the world stage, and has the ability to win a general election.
That is Marco Rubio.
Thank you and God Bless America,
One GOPe endorsing another GOPe member. Santorum’s endorsement will have no impact. He’s delusional if he thinks otherwise.
Thanks for the advice, Santorum. I like Cruz and can’t stand Rubio. So...thank you for your contribution. Good-bye.
Everybody is delutional except Cruz supporters.
What are the odds of that?
Santorum is a GOPe shill.
I state this as someone who has witnessed his rise and fall from both near and far. The endorsement is worthless.
Rubio cannot have my vote.
Say gnight Ricky.
I am terribly disappointed that Rick went to the dark side and endorsed Amnesty Boy Rubio.
It’s always this way, its a general election and Rick is a general loser.
Trump is a general bully
The question thus becomes, who is not a GOPe shill?
Thus the fireworks here recently.
Get a real job for a change, Rick!
Stuns me that he keeps making the same mistake.
someone upthread said it.
Give it a rest pal, it Aint working after decade.
Get a day job.
If all of Bush’s, Santorum’s, Kasich’s and Christi’s percentages all went to Rubio for the GOPe...it gives him about 10% more.
That’s still not enough.
Ultimately a lot of Fiorina’s, Carson’s and Paul’s numbers will be split by Trump and Cruz I believe.
It’s going to make for a good three way race...but I believe after Super Tuesday it will become clear who the clear leader is.
He didn’t endorse Trump ... you can read, right ?
MortMan, you and I share the same observation.
Still waiting for my sweater vest, Rick.
I got a feeling this Moron will keep running for president until hes 85
