Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Wednesday, becoming the latest big-name Republican to throw his support behind the likely Republican nominee.
Rubio, considered by many to be the favorite for the GOP’s vice presidential nomination, declined to endorse before the Florida primary earlier this year. But he said Wednesday during an appearance on Fox News Channel that it’s time to coalesce around Romney.
“It’s increasingly clear that Mitt Romney’s gonna be the Republican nominee,” Rubio said. “We’ve got to come together behind who I think has earned this nomination and that’s Mitt Romney.”
