Jeb Bush Endorses Marco Rubio in FL Senate Race

This may have been the worst kept secret in Florida -- it was always a matter of "when" Jeb Bush would endorse Rubio not "if" as there is no way that Jeb Bush would ever have endorsed Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio. When the news broke today, the comment we heard the most was we thought he already had endorsed Rubio -- now it is official. Jeb's two sons, George P and Jeb Jr. endorsed Marco Rubio earlier and are raising money for his race.

In his endorsement, Bush says Rubio is a passionate, principled leader who wouldn't change his views when political winds shift.

Rubio says Bush has been an inspiration to him, saying, "Gov. Bush's service to Florida is immeasurable, as is his impact on my own life and career."

Bush and the former House speaker will appear together Friday and a Pasco County Republican dinner. There should be a full house in Pasco County for their County Dinner.

With no primary opponent, Rubio and his supporters can concentrate on winning on November 2nd, 2010, and sending both opponents to a resounding defeat. Wouldn't give you two cents for the Rasmussen Poll on the Florida race -- he is not doing very good in State races so far this year like Indiana's Senate race.
