Mitt Romney expressed words of support for Florida Senator Marco Rubio on Saturday, in regards to the Cuban-American lawmakers family exile embellishment flap. Romney said told reporters in New Hampshire:
“I have the highest respect for Marco Rubio. I think his family's history of having come to this country speaks for itself," said Romney, adding: "I think the world of Marco Rubio, support him entirely and think that the effort to try to smear him was unfortunate and bogus."
A Romney/Rubio ticket has been talk in political circles for some time and Romney appears to continue to hold Rubio in high esteem. The AP has a summary of the Rubio controversy here.
Meanwhile, ABC News reports the following:
Christine O’Donnell, the former Republican Senate candidate and a Tea Party favorite during the 2010 election, said in an exclusive interview with ABC News that she has not only given money to presidential candidate Mitt Romney but also says she doesn’t think he is getting a “getting a fair shake” from those within her own movement.
Hot Air has an assessment of O’Donnell’s comments and what they think it means.
And in a very positive development, Romney is set to pick up the endorsement of former New Hampshire Governor John H. Sununu on Monday. As reported by The Union Leader, Sununu says:
“I'm viewed as a good, solid conservative Republican and I'm supporting a good, solid conservative Republican,” Sununu said in disclosing his long-awaited endorsement.
The endorsement continues a long line of NH legislators and high powered political leaders who are backing Romney this cycle.
