Rubio's crowd: Liz Cheney, Matalin, Senor

Maybe Senator Cornyn at NRSC should reconsider his endorsement of Gov Crist for Florida Senator. Time that the NRSC stayed out of endorsing in races where there is no incumbent. Rubio has been steadily rising while Crist has been tanking since Cornyn endorsed early. When you look at who is supporting Rubio, you begin to understand why he is doing so well.

Marco Rubio's appeal to Washington's conservative and Republican establishment will be on display this Thursday at a fundraiser for him in the offices of the lobbying and consulting firm Navigators Global.

The $500-a-head event's hosts include former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter Liz, former Dick Cheney aide Mary Matalin, former Bush Iraq spokesman Dan Senor, consultants Alex Castellanos and Phil Anderson, and former Reps. Vin Weber and J.C. Watts.

The honorary hosts of the event, which coincides with CPAC, are leading Hill conservatives, including Sens. Jim DeMint and Jim Inhofe, and Reps. Paul Ryan, Mike Pence, and Jeff Miller.

Backing Rubio in the Florida Senate race is becoming a litmus test for conservatives.

Cesar Conda, who wrote recently of switching from Crist to Rubio, organized the event.
