Romney Gains Big Endorsements, Eyes the Nomination
1 year ago
Recently endorsed by Sen. Marco Rubio & George H.W. Bush.
It seems like Mitt Romney may just get the nomination before the Republican National Convention after all, at least that’s what's swirling around on the news-waves today. Especially with the recent endorsements from Marco Rubio, Senator of swing-state Florida, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and George H. W. Bush (the first Bush).
The endorsement from Mr. Rubio signals that the shenanigans we’ve seen during the Republican nominee race may soon end, with Mitt Romney on top. It's interesting that Mr. Rubio waited this long to endorse someone, although very smart. Pretty much all of the Republican nominees had their shine this campaign season. Newt Gingrich with Georgia and South Carolina, Rick Santorum with his close contests and wins with Mr. Romney, and Ron Paul with, well, Ron Paul is still campaigning so I guess that counts for something.
Not only are these endorsements great affirmations that Romney will get the nomination soon but they also help thrust Marco Rubio back into the spotlight as the potential vice-presidential candidate.
Like many vice-presidential candidates, he’s saying he’s not interested though. Sure you aren't, Marco.

He also spoke about the state of the race and was right about one thing; going into the Republican convention with no nominee selected is a disaster waiting to happen—especially with social media today.
“In the modern era, in the 21st century you cannot have an open fist fight like that at the convention, and nine weeks later defeat the best-funded presidential candidate in American history,” he said. Smart thinking.
