Mia Love endorses Marco Rubio
It’s the foreign policy.
A surprising, but welcoming congressional endorsement.
Mia Love inserted herself into the pages of history in November 2014 when she became the first black Republican woman elected to Congress, when she defeated Democrat Doug Owens 50%-47%.
Love, who is of Haitian descent and a Mormon, has now expressed her support for Sen. Marco Rubio to be the recipient of the GOP presidential nomination, citing similarities in personal success stories:
“I watched him inspire people. He had a rally. And he talked about his family. And he talked about his love for this country,” she told Fox News host Jenna Lee, Thursday. “And I realized my story is so similar to his. He has a positive agenda moving forward. And for the first time in a long time, I felt someone who really loves this country and doesn’t take for granted the benefits that this country has.”
In the wake of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Love pointed to foreign policy as a strength of Rubio’s:
“He’s very strong when it comes to foreign policy, national defense. And this is a time where we need a president in our country that is going to make sure that we are, we are strong.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Rubio is unacceptable.
Ditto. He’s a good talker, though. He’s quite qualified to be the WH spokesperson, or the Speech Czar, and that’s about it.
P.S. And among other things, Jeb’s former protogé is owned by GOPe funding machines, lobbyists, crony corporatists.
Rubio was against amnesty before he was for amnesty before he was against amnesty. I’m just against Rubio. Nominate him and I’ll be voting for the lesser of two evils, the Democrat. Both will destroy the country, but the RINO also destroys the GOP. I don’t sit at home and hope RINOs lose. I vote against them. I don’t want them to have any power in my Party.
If Love really looked into Rubio’s past, I have to believe that we’re now seeing who’s really a RINO and who’s a conservative.
I’m seeing a lot of screen names that I’ve never seen before. Trolls, perhaps?
Now now. Not all those refugees are ISIS terrorists. Not all newbies are trolls.
Speaking of feelings, I contributed to Mia’s first few campaigns, but I don’t feel that I will be so likely to again.
Ditto; I was a sucker and contributed too. I’ve since emailed her to tell her of my disappointment in her, and to ask to be removed from her mailing list. She will not ever have my support again.
I do not contribute to GOPe. Not only that, I left the Republicrat party; now I’ve had to rejoin that nest of liars and thieves, just to be able to vote for Donald Trump in the primary (which I would urge all who love America to do.)
After the primary, I’m once again leaving the GOPe, until all the progressives (like Rubio, McCain, McConnell) have been purged from the party! No more imitation Democrats for me!
Right there with you at all points except I have to go through caucus and convention before the primary, but then again I get to vote against those who betrayed us at those levels.
Rubio is the Republican Obama — a slick, audacious liar with little demonstrated competence in any vocation outside of speech-making. At least Obama has been able to finesse his deceits into legislation. Rubio’s ham-handed effort to shove Schumer-assisted amnesty down America’s throat was a humiliating bust.
A black woman congress-critter, expressing her support for a Latino candidate for President. Supported by some, but dissed by others for his policy views. Yeah, those Conservatives sure are some vile racists.
She’s an amateur.
Rubio is for Amnesty. Amnesty is the D’s Holy Grail agenda item – if they ever get it passed, this country will lurch hard left for generations, possibly forever, and will become unrecognizable.
Unless your a hard-core Marxist, how can you possibly support Amnesty or any politician that, like Rubio, supports it?
By supporting Rubio, it makes Love appear to be either naive, bought-off or drinking the same Kool-Aid Rubio drank before getting into bed with Schumer.
Mia, your first time at bat, and you strike out before the ball is even pitched.
He’s very strong when it comes to foreign policy, national defense.
I detect a strong whiff of cognitive dissonance there.
Not surprising but disappointing nevertheless. Another Amnesty chump.
Mia Love lost me long bore she was elected. After she was elected, she did the party dance. Thereafter, nothing she says makes a dent. Her endorsement of Rubio is of a piece with her political POV. No true Conservative would ever support stab-the-TP-in-the-back Rubio. Mia’s jumped the shark and doesn’t know it.
