Rubio Is Cashin' In!

The biggest endorsement for the Florida senator is a big bundler for the Republican Party. This bundler gave millions to Republicans like the perennial loser Mitt Romney.

Paul Singer a mega donor came out in favor of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Singer was a supporter of Jeb Bush. He flipped the script on Bush and cashed in on Rubio.

This is a big blow to the Bush campaign.

"He is accustomed to thinking about American foreign policy as a responsible policy maker," the hedge fund manager wrote. "He is ready to be an informed and assertive decision-maker." Rubio is the "best explainer of conservatism in public life today" and can "appeal to both the head and the heart," wrote Singer, describing the senator as the only candidate who can "navigate this complex primary process" and go on to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Money man gave Sen. Marco Rubio a $$$$$$$$$$ contract.
Bush, whose campaign warned donors last week that Rubio is a "risky bet," tried hard to win Singer's support, as did Chris Christie. Sources tell the Times that there was no single moment when the billionaire decided on Rubio, although Bush's dismal debate performance didn't help his cause. At a campaign event in Iowa on Friday, Rubio said he welcomed Singer's support, though he added that "resources alone are not enough" and "you have to have the right ideas and the right principles and convince people that you’re the right person for the job," the Guardian reports. He declined to address Bush's attacks on him, saying he doesn't think "it is a smart thing for Republicans to do Hillary Clinton’s job for her."

Singer warned Republicans that if they continue to push the anti-gay agenda, he might pull back on them. Singer is a strong supporter of Israel. Singer has a son who is gay.
