DONALD TRUMP DISSED, MARCO RUBIO HUMILIATED
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz has been endorsed by his colleague Mike Lee of Utah – dealing a rebuke to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and another hammer blow to the flagging candidacy of Marco Rubio.
Trump has mocked Cruz in the past for being unable to land the endorsement of a single one of his colleagues in the U.S. Senate.
That’s no longer true … he now has the support of Lee, one of the most pro-free market members of the entire U.S. Congress.
“Ted Cruz has been a tireless defender of the Constitution and the founding principles that have made this the greatest country the world has ever known,” Lee said in a statement backing Cruz. “Ted is an authentic fighter who will ensure that poverty is temporary instead of tolerable, that hardworking families will have real opportunities to rise and he will put an end to the special perks and privileges for the wealthy and well-connected.”
Meanwhile Rubio not only lost out on Lee’s endorsement – he had to endure the indignity of Lee urging him to give up his cratering candidacy.
“If Senator Rubio were asking me that, I would encourage him, and I do encourage him to get behind Ted Cruz,” Lee told reporters.
Rubio is adamant that he is not dropping out of the race. He vowed to continue fighting “all the way through” the upcoming election and pledged to win his home state of Florida even though polls there show him trailing Trump by a wide margin.
“We win Florida on Tuesday and this election changes completely, and it gives us the momentum to go forward to win the nomination,” Rubio said.
……and this is one person versus how many in the senate? So???? Cruz go ahead and crawl back into the hole you came out of……….WHO CARES…….not me!
The only man who could possibly make a difference and might actually do what he says he is going to do. Too bad he is a creepy religious zealot.
Mike Lee… never heard of him, but is this really a big deal or is it like getting the endorsement of Lindsey Graham?
I believe the latter is more closely on-target.
Well at least Marco is not afraid to use his real name, right Rafael.
We told him it was best to go by Ted while writing up the paperwork for his loan- obviously he agreed.
! senator endorses him when the alternative is Donald Trump.
BOY, that’s impressive!!
Wonder how much a super pac paid Lee for that endorsement?
Grandpa Munster got an endorsement finally…
That is funny. :)
Washington Post is reporting Ben Carson will endorse Donald Trump Tomorrow. I guess he just could not support Rafael the liar.
Carson also doesn’t have any fucking idea where he is at any moment. He would probably endorse a turtle just as easily.
Dude, git yer hand outta yer pocket. We don’t want to see you playin’ pocket pool while you talk. Hmmmm… let me pull this thing out. Creepy.
Endorsements mean nothing to most Americans.
Don’t wet yourself Fits!
Thanks Rubio for not manning up to step out of the race. Hellary Clinton especially thanks you.
TED CRUZ is one ugly son of a bitch..
..don’t know why people are voting for him.
