George P Bush, son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, endorses Marco Rubio for US senate in the 2010 Senate race in Florida.
Miami, FL – U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio today announced he has earned the endorsement of George P. Bush.
Making today’s announcement, Bush said, “I’ve known Marco Rubio for years and saw what he could do during the six years he spent working alongside my father promoting ideas and reform-based conservatism. He is a rock-solid conservative and the leader Floridians deserve in the U.S. Senate to advocate for limited government and greater personal freedoms. Marco’s deeply rooted principles and can-do spirit will make him a powerful voice on behalf of those who want to hold Washington accountable for its excesses while offering bold solutions to our nation’s challenges.”
Today’s announcement comes in advance of a Rubio for Senate campaign fundraiser being held tonight in Coral Gables, FL. The event is co-hosted by George P. Bush, as well as his brother, Jeb Bush, Jr., who endorsed Rubio in May 2009.
In welcoming Bush’s endorsement, Rubio said, “George P. Bush is a rising star who is carrying on his family’s great tradition of defending and promoting the Republican ideals we hold dear. As a businessman, family man and public servant, George P. Bush understands firsthand what our state and nation have at stake in the coming election. I am proud to have his support as we work to get America back on a limited government track.”
