Marco Rubio says he and Jeb Bush to meet



Does anyone really doubt that Jeb Bush will endorse Marco Rubio before Florida's March 15 primary? It may not happen right away, but John Kasich is a long shot, Bush loaths Donald Trump, and he and Rubio agree on most issues. And staying silent would make Bush look like a sore loser

Marco Rubio told reporters in Nevada Tuesday that he has spoken to  Bush and the two will meet soon. From the New York Times

Mr. Rubio said he had not asked for Mr. Bush’s endorsement. “He’s just decompressing from this election,” Mr. Rubio told reporters. “And trying to get going again in the rest of his life. But we’ll meet and talk soon enough.”

He characterized their talk as friendly. “A nice conversation,” he said. “We’re going to get together soon.”

Despite the acrimony between their two campaigns, Mr. Rubio said, “Things happen.”
