Rubio picks up another U.S. Senate endorsement



Marco Rubio's campaign for U.S. Senate, already picking up speed with fundraising, now has another endorsement to tout. The Buzz is U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Oklahoma, will endorse the former Republican House speaker today.

 “I enthusiastically support Marco Rubio in his campaign for U.S. Senate.  Marco is exactly the type of conservative leader Americans need in Washington today fighting for the principles of limited government, individual liberty and personal responsibility.

“Like me, Marco believes that the federal government works best when it returns dollars, decisions and freedom to our local communities and families.  In the Senate, Marco will stand up for America’s taxpayers, not with President Obama and dangerous big government spending,” he added.

Rubio was previously endorsed by South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint.
