Jacksonville Mayor Curry endorses Rubio



Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry on Sunday endorsed Marco Rubio.

“For conservatives this election represents an opportunity to lead a new generation of Americans into a prosperous future. To do so requires a president who is aspirational, accomplished, and able to unite Americans to a shared vision of less government with more freedom to see dreams become reality," Curry said in a statment. "For years, Marco Rubio and I have worked together for the conservative cause. We have fought for a brighter future and sought to demonstrate how Republicans lead. Today, and in this election for our nation's future, I am proud to once again stand with my friend Marco Rubio.

“Marco will rebuild our military and defend our nation from the threats around the world. He will make certain we honor the promises our nation makes to our veterans. Marco will support law enforcement and local communities as we combat crime and hopelessness in our cities. And, he will tear down the bureaucracy that stands between success and an American with the dream to start a small business. In a contest that has included many good candidates, I proudly endorse the only candidate who can unite our party and unite our nation. Early voting is underway and this election is so important. I urge my fellow Republicans to cast their vote for Marco Rubio by March 15, then join with me and elect Marco as our nation's 45th President in November.”

Rubio is expected to get the endorsement of the Miami Republican members of congress who backed Jeb Bush.
