A new release from the Miami campaign:
U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio today announced he has earned the endorsement of Steve Forbes, Chairman and CEO of Forbes and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes magazine.
Making today’s announcement, Forbes said, “Throughout his career, Marco Rubio has demonstrated an unshakable faith in free markets and limited government that have earned him the trust and admiration of supply-side conservatives everywhere. Marco Rubio is the only true fiscal conservative in Florida’s U.S. Senate race, which is why I am proud to support him.
“With Floridians suffering through the worst economic situation in decades, Marco Rubio has proven he has the right principles, ideas and energy to get us back on track. Marco Rubio will not only stand up against the Obama-Reid-Pelosi agenda in Washington, he will also unite all who believe America should stay true to the principles of limited government and individual freedom.”
Welcoming Forbes’ endorsement, Rubio commented, “Steve Forbes is one of the leading lights in America’s business community, and I am proud to have his support. Throughout his career, Steve Forbes has built an exemplary business and been an effective advocate of free enterprise and greater freedoms at home and abroad.
“Our campaign is built around the goal of empowering individuals and entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams and create jobs in the process. I am honored to have the support of Steve Forbes who, while devoting his career to highlighting the millions of entrepreneurs that make our American economy exceptional, became a great success story himself.”
