"endorsing marco seemed like the natural conclusion of a several month process of evaluating and understanding the passion, the policy, and the purpose of each candidate." this is rubio's second big political endorsement- the other being congressman trey gowdy. and scott's endorsement has been coveted by all gop campaigns- especially since he candidates in 2012. this year the candidates i believe are even stronger, and so it made the difficult process of evaluating each candidate harder, but simpler at the same time."
