All the Republican presidential candidates have promised to pledge their support around the eventual Republican nominee. But after a messy election, and some ambiguity over whether or not Trump would pursue a third party run, Trump isn’t the only one who may break that promise.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Marco is having second thoughts on whether or not he would be able to support a Trump presidency:
Florida Senator Marco Rubio said Saturday that “it’s getting harder everyday” to envision his support for the eventual Republican nominee for president if the choice is Donald Trump, according to ABC News.
Rubio, who has struggled to garner support for his nomination during the election campaign, made the comment after being asked if he would support Trump if he were the Republican nominee for president.
“I don’t know,” Rubio began. “The fact that you’re asking me that question, um… I still at this moment continue to intend to support the Republican nominee, but it’s getting harder everyday,” he added.Does that mean he’ll be backing Hillary instead? That would be a bit of a stretch. Or will he do what so many disgruntled Republicans did in 2012 and just sit this one out?
