Chaffetz to Campaign for Rubio

Rep. Jason Chaffetz endorses Marco Rubio for president and announces his plans to join the Florida senator at a campaign event in New Hampshire on Friday.


Reports Politico:

“Marco Rubio is a conservative leader who understands the challenges facing American families in the 21st century. I’m looking forward to hitting the campaign trail with Marco to talk about the future of our country and the importance of electing a next-generation conservative in 2016,” Chaffetz said in a statement to POLITICO.

Rubio is locked in a crowded race with other center-right candidates Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Chris Christie in the nation’s first GOP primary state, but Rubio is gathering more momentum in the halls of Congress than any other GOP presidential candidate. While Bush shot out to an early lead in terms of congressional endorsements, Chaffetz joins a swelling group of high-profile lawmakers backing Rubio.
