A big pick-up for Mitt:
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., endorsed Mitt Romney for president Wednesday night on Fox News’ “Hannity,” saying Romney offers “a very clear alternative” to President Obama’s vision for the future of the country.
Rubio, a young, first-termer who has been discussed as a possible vice presidential candidate, criticized talk of a fight for the Republican nomination on the convention floor, a possibility that is keeping alive the campaigns of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.
“I think that’s a recipe for delivering four more years of Barack Obama,” Rubio told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
Look, Romney wasn’t my first choice, nor my second, nor even my third, but there comes a time when the party has to come together behind a single candidate if we’re going to have any chance to beat Obama in November, and the sooner we do that the better.
If enough conservatives sit out in November, or write in Newt or Ron Paul or Sarah or whoever, Obama will cruise to victory.
“We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” Ben Franklin knew it, it’s time conservatives remembered his wisdom.
