As the Iowa caucuses approached, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) became the 23rd senator to back former President Donald Trump for President.
Along with Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) and the majority of the Republican delegation from Florida in the House, Rubio recently tweeted to express his support for Trump.
Reports show the Florida Senator emphasized that Trump’s administration was successful in implementing long-sought reforms because special interests could not influence the president.
Even though Trump was in the White House for a short time, Rubio—a leading Republican primary opponent of Trump’s in 2016—wrote that the president’s refusal to give in to special interests or allow bureaucrats to stand in the way of his long-sought policies, such as extending the child tax credit and strict sanctions on the Cuban and Venezuelan regimes, were both implemented.
According to Rubio, supporting Trump is the only way to provide the measures required to rectify the havoc that Biden has caused. He told the voters to stop wasting time and start working to defeat Biden and save America!
As well as Rubio’s support, Trump has the endorsement of 23 Republican senators, which is over half of the GOP delegation, according to the running endorsement tracker on FiveThirtyEight.
Rubio’s declaration highlights Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) ‘s difficulty in achieving unity of support among prominent Republicans from his own state.
At a rally in Indianola, Iowa, Trump was backed by North Dakota’s first lady, Kathryn Burgum, and by Republican Gov. Doug Burgum (R-ND), who was a contender of Trump’s in the 2024 race but dropped out of the GOP primary in December.
According to Right Side Broadcasting’s feed of Trump’s event in Iowa, Burgum declared his support for Trump. Trump responded by saying it was an honor and that Burgum has an excellent track record in all his endeavors.
