Hotline On Call has posted this:
Jeb Bush Jr., son of the last FL governor and grandson of the first Pres. Bush, endorsed Marco Rubio today in his looming ‘10 primary battle against Gov. Charlie Crist for the Sunshine State’s open Sen seat.
Much speculation centers on whether this forebodes an endorsement by Jeb Bush the father, which would raise the heat on a Republican primary race. Many centrist Republicans have already christened Crist as the candidate most likely to retain the seat now held by Republican Mel Martinez.
But Rubio, himself Hispanic and bilingual, might be looking better to some nervous Republicans in light of the Sonia Sotomayor nomination by President Barack Obama.
Said Bush the younger:
Marco Rubio is a candidate who can help to bring our Party back on track by reaching out to our youth, entrepreneurs, Hispanics and those who believe that if you work hard enough, anything you dream can be achieved.
