Karl Rove Supports Marco Rubio In Florida Senate Race

Vern Fisher/Newscom

Marco Rubio, the former Florida state House Speaker and current insurgent conservative candidate in the 2010 Republican primary for Senate, has just picked up a big-name supporter: Karl Rove, who has donated $1,000 to the campaign.

Rubio is facing an uphill battle against the big favorite in the race, moderate Republican Gov. Charlie Crist. Rubio has hoped to mobilize conservative resentments against Crist, especially over Crist’s backing of President Obama’s stimulus bill. And as of right now, it appears he has a big ally in his battle against the national GOP establishment.
