Rubio Says Cruz ‘only conservative left in the race’

Here we go. To be sure, Rubio has not yet fully endorsed, but this is a good starting point.

He didn’t endorse either Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the two other remaining candidates. But Rubio praised Cruz as “the only conservative left in the race.”

Rubio said his positive campaign message didn’t match the national mood, and said media coverage helped snowball Super Tuesday losses into the end of his campaign.

“This election was entirely driven by national media coverage, in many ways,” Rubio said, in audio of the conference call obtained by the Pioneer Press. “When the media narrative goes negative on you, and all the news is bad, it kind of knocks us off.”

We need to get Rubio and Cruz on the campaign trail together ASAP to shift the dynamics in the race and show the party what it would look like if everyone #NeverTrump unites.
