Jeb Bush Jr. will formally announce his endorsement of Jon Huntsman this morning in Miami.
“Jon is the candidate best-equipped to defeat President Obama next November,” Bush wrote in a blog post on the Huntsman site.
“Gov. Huntsman is the only candidate with a proven record of creating jobs, in business and as governor. He understands that, as Marco Rubio recently noted, ‘We don’t need more taxes; we need more taxpayers,’” Bush wrote.
“As more Americans get to know Jon and his record, I’m confident his support will continue to grow,” Bush added. “Two years ago, I jumped on board Marco Rubio’s campaign when he was polling at 3 percent, and we made history. With Jon, I can’t wait to make history again.”
