Rubio endorses Hasner, for U.S. House



Adam Hasner would have loved to get Marco Rubio's endorsement while running for U.S. Senate. Instead he'll settle for an endorsement in his revamped campaign for U.S. House.

“As my Majority Leader in the Florida House, Adam Hasner and I worked side-by-side taking on the status quo in Tallahassee and together we can do the same thing in Washington," Rubio said in a statement released by the campaign. "He is a passionate advocate for American values and will fight tirelessly for the needs of Floridians. Adam’s proven record of cutting red tape and wasteful spending is well known and his leadership on energy policy and critical national security issues will make him immediately effective in Congress. I am proud to endorse and stand with Adam every step of the way in his bid for the United States House. His conservative, common-sense approach is sure to help us restore our nation’s prosperity.”

Rubio has said he'll stay neutral in the Senate race (and presidential).
