Marco Rubio weighs in on Brevard property appraiser race



Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is paying back one his earliest grass roots supports, former Brevard County Republican Chairman Jason Steele, endorsing Steele for property appraiser.

"Jason Steele was one of my earliest supporters, he served as the Director of the Division Real Estate, and Appraising under Governor Jeb Bush, is a fiscal conservative, and is a perfect choice for Brevard County Property Appraiser," Rubio said in a statement.

Steele was one of the leading critics of former GOP chairman Jim Greer, and found himself smeared by a top Greer staffer posing as Steele on Twitter.
