One of the biggest names of all in the Republican party has just endorsed Marco Rubio in the Florida Senate race: Former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Cheney’s endorsements comes as the political world is preparing for an expected independent Senate campaign by Rubio’s current opponent in the Republican primary, Gov. Charlie Crist. Cheney makes sure to attack Crist in his statement of endorsement.
“Charlie Crist has shown time and again that he cannot be trusted in Washington to take on the Obama agenda because on issue after issue he actually supports that agenda,” Cheney says. “Lately it seems Charlie Crist cannot be trusted even to remain a Republican. I strongly urge him to either stay in the Republican Primary or drop out of the race. The only winners from an independent bid by Crist would be Barack Obama and Harry Reid.”
