Marco Rubio earns endorsements from 32 Alabama lawmakers

1

Florida’s junior U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is counting on neighbor state Alabama to show its strong support Tuesday in its Republican presidential primary.

Hoping to build what Rubio’s team calls “Marcomentum” going into the weekend, Rubio rolled out endorsements from 32 Alabama elected officials Thursday, just days ahead of the March 1 primary.

On the steps of the state capitol in Montgomery, Alabama state campaign chairman and Alabama state Rep. Will Ainsworth along with a group of his colleagues gathered to show their public, unified support for Rubio.

“Our party needs Marco Rubio and I am so happy that all these leaders across our state are joining with me in supporting him,” said Ainsworth. “Now that this field has started to winnow, it’s clear that any vote not for Marco is a vote for Donald Trump. We need our nominee to be a serious conservative that can win in November and that is what Marco Rubio will be.”

Fellow Rubio supporter, Alabama State Sen. Slade Blackwell agreed.

“I am proud that I can stand beside so many influential Alabama leaders today as we announce our support for Marco Rubio,” Blackwell said. “Marco needs our support at the polls on March 1 because we need a nominee that can beat the Democrats in the fall and take back the White House so we can solve our nation’s problems through conservative principles.”
