‘Monumental’: Senator Marco Rubio endorses Trump over DeSantis in twist ahead of Iowa Caucus

by

Just hours ahead of the critical Iowa Caucus, former President Donald Trump earned the endorsement of his home state’s senator and former rival.

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio proclaimed his decision to back Trump in a social media message on the eve of the Iowa vote, choosing to forego official support for his GOP governor and 2024 presidential candidate, Ron DeSantis.

Trump is “the ONLY way” to get America back on track and out from under the “disaster” caused by President Joe Biden, asserted Rubio, who ran against Trump in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

“When Trump was in WH I achieved major policies I had worked on for years (like expanded Child Tax Credit & tough sanctions on regime in Cuba & Venezuela) because we had a President who didn’t cave to special interests or let bureaucrats block us,” Rubio wrote on X on Sunday.

“I support Trump because that kind of leadership is the ONLY way we will get the extraordinary actions needed to fix the disaster Biden has created,” he added.

“It’s time to get on with the work of beating Biden & saving America!” Rubio’s message concluded.

Trump has even acknowledged that he and Rubio had a “tough campaign” together in 2016 when he nicknamed Rubio “Little Marco.”

“I got to know him as president and we did great together,” Trump said of Rubio when he backed his re-election as senator.

Florida’s other U.S. senator, Republican Sen. Rick Scott, endorsed Trump back in November. In the Sunshine State, which will hold its GOP primary on March 19, Trump is leading his rival according to a polling index from The Hill and Decision Desk HQ. It shows the former president with a 61 percent to 18.8 percent lead over DeSantis. a total of 42.1 percentage points.

Rubio’s post followed a surprise endorsement from North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, who was running against Trump for the 2024 nomination before dropping out.

“I’m here to do something that none of the other presidential primary candidates have done, and that’s endorse Donald J. Trump for the president of the United States of America,” Burgum told the crowd at a Trump campaign event at Simpson College’s Kent Campus Center Sunday.

“I’ve seen President Trump and what he’s been able to do, I’ve seen it as a business leader and I’ve seen it as a governor,” the billionaire businessman added. “I’ve seen the difference that President Trump can make.”
