When Marco Rubio Didn’t Endorse Mitt Romney

The Senator from Florida endorsed Mike Huckabee over Mitt Romney in the 2008 Republican primary because he was a “Reagan conservative.” The Romney campaign downplayed Rubio’s endorsing his rival in 2008, noting he had been endorsed by three former Speakers of the Florida House, and saying “three speakers beat one.”
