This from The Washington Times:
Viewed by many as the heir-apparent to Jeb Bush, Mr. Rubio will be the candidate-of-choice for conservative Floridians. Mr. Rubio was even recently endorsed by Jeb Bush Jr., son of the former governor, as well as social-conservative-favorite Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor. Standing in his way is primary opponent Mr. Crist.
Fortunately, conservatives are beginning to realize they need more leaders like Mr. Rubio. No one can look at Mr. Crist and view him as the future of the party. He's an "old white guy" and a populist. Mr. Rubio is a stark contrast - young, Hispanic and principled.He also picked up the endorsement of Dennis Baxley, the former state Speaker Pro Tempore and outgoing head of the state Christian Coalition, in addition to his endorsements from Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee. Rubio still lags in the polls but is gaining ground, slightly. But it's still early!
WAY early, Mr. Cornyn!
