Jeb Bush grabs endorsement of two of Rubio's Senate colleagues

Jeb Bush will pick up the endorsement of Sens. Dean Heller and Orrin Hatch at a noon event in Reno.

"Our nation is at a crossroads. It is in dire need of a proven leader. That leader is Jeb Bush," Heller said in a statement. "As the governor of Florida, Jeb built a strong record and proved to Americans his policies will help them advance toward a better tomorrow." Heller said.

Said Hatch: "Jeb is a proven leader. He has a real record of cutting taxes, fostering job creation, and reforming government. I know Jeb will return the United States to a position of leadership in the world."
