Tom Lee endorses Marco Rubio



Former state Sen. President  Lee, R-Brandon: "During my years in the Legislature, I served with Marco Rubio, Charlie Crist and Kendrick Meek. I know them very well, and I've seen the kind of leadership each one brings to the table. I endorse Marco Rubio because his record and vision for our state and nation are exactly what we need right now. During my time as Senate President, I worked closely with Governor Jeb Bush and Speaker Allan Bense to pursue bold conservative reforms. Marco Rubio was always a key part of advancing our agenda to improve education, limit spending, increase transparency and trust in government, and to return more money to Florida's taxpayers.

“Those of us who worked alongside Marco have witnessed his dedication to limited government principles firsthand, and we know the words he speaks today come from his heart and are deeply rooted in long-held beliefs. Marco's record makes it clear that he is the only candidate in this race we can trust to go to Washington and stand up for common sense, mainstream Republican values and offer an alternative to the extreme agenda being pursued by President Obama and Congressional Democrats."
