February 22, 2016
Former Minnesota Governor and 2012 presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty is backing Marco ahead of that state's March 1st caucuses.
Governor Pawlenty made his announcement on CNN this morning:
I'm announcing this morning and first on your show that I'm going to endorse Marco Rubio for President. And Alisyn, I think it comes down to this: He's strong, he's also informed, he's conservative and he's electable and he can unite the party and you can't ask for much more than that. I think he has got the total package.
Pawlenty was elected twice as an outspoken conservative in Minnesota.
Welcome Governor Pawlenty to Team Marco!
