Rudy Guiliana Endorses Marco Rubion, April 5, 2010

We were very happy to hear this as there had been a lot of speculation about who was endorsing Marco Rubio on Monday after Senator (Dr.) Coburn endorsed Rubio on the 31st of March. We don't know of anyone from outside of Florida who will be more welcome then Mayor Rudy by the people of South Florida.

Rudy has always stood for Freedom and a strong national security along with smaller government and less taxes. He left no doubt following 9/11 what he thinks of terrorists and how they should be handled. He certainly would never consider bringing them to the United States for trial in Federal Court. Rudy is a law and order person who would make the best Attorney General that this Country ever had.

On Wednesday, March 31, Senator (Dr.) Coburn of Oklahoma, the fiscal conservative Conscience of the Senate endorsed Rubio to add to the earlier endorsements by Senator Inhofe (R-OK), and Sen DeMint (R-SC). Oklahoma has two of the most conservative Senators, and now both have endorsed Marco Rubio which speaks volumes about Marco Rubio and his conservative credentials. We believe this statement from Dr. Coburn pretty much sums up the race:

"From the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ to the ‘Woodstock Museum,’ I’ve fought all kinds of wasteful spending throughout my career. But in my lifetime, I’ve never seen as wasteful a spending project as the failed $787 billion stimulus bill that Marco’s opponents supported. I have full confidence Marco will stand against costly disasters like the stimulus bill and government-run health care," Dr. Coburn said.
When Gov Crist endorsed the stimulus package and greeted Obama like his long lost brother last fall, he broke with Republican and Independent fiscal conservatives. Then Crist had former Florida GOP Chair Greer running around arm twisting people to endorse Crist in a contested primary. The NRSC Chair Cornyn made the foolish move of doing just that -- endorsing Crist last year. The NRSC Chair should never endorse in an open seat primary. In the end it will cost the NRSC support from donors who always gave who are now giving direct to candidates.

NRCC, headed by Pete Sessions, seems to be the only one of the three major National Republican organizations on track to the task of winning back seats in the House by being on the offensive. The other two organizations, NRSC and RNC, are running into problems of their own making.

Dr. Coburn with this endorsement is asking Floridians to send Marco Rubio to the Senate to join the fight with him and Senator McCain to reign in pork, earmarks, and runaway spending. Dr. Coburn joined Senator McCain to fight pork and earmarks the day he was sworn in as a Senator in January 2005. Before that he was a House Member for three terms going to DC following the takeover of the House 1994. As part of that Contract with America group he took a pledge to only servie three terms which he did. Now as a Senator, he has pledged to only serve two terms.

Marco Rubio could not have a better mentor then Dr. Coburn who is up for reelection this year but yet to hear who will be his opponent. Oklahoma will be sending Dr. Coburn back to the United States Senate to continue the job of reigning in pork, earmarks, and runaway spending. We are asking the good people of Florida to send Marco Rubio to help.

Sen. Coburn Endorses Rubio
Posted by Kyle Trygstad

Florida Senate candidate Marco Rubio received a major endorsement this morning that could help to solidify Rubio's argument that he's the true conservative in the Republican primary. Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, known for holding up legislation he deems fiscally unsound, is throwing his support behind Rubio.

"I proudly endorse Marco Rubio for the U.S. Senate and look forward to working with him in Washington," Coburn said in a statement released by the Rubio campaign. "His genuine principles and proven record are evidence that he will come to Washington and be a consistent advocate for fiscal responsibility, individual liberty and the traditional values that have made America great. I have closely studied Florida's Senate candidates and have no doubt that Marco Rubio is the only fiscal conservative in this race."

This is another blow to Gov. Charlie Crist, the now-former establishment candidate.

Earlier this month, NRSC Chairman John Cornyn walked back his endorsement of Crist, stating the committee would not withdraw its initial pronouncement of support but would also not engage in the primary.
