Today Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) is widely expected to endorse Marco Rubio for President. Toomey was elected to the Senate in 2010, along with Rubio. Toomey defeated the late Arlen Specter (D-PA), who infuriated Republicans when he defected to the Democratic Party in 2009 giving them a super majority in the Senate.
Yesterday, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) strongly endorsed Rubio. Scott’s endorsement is crucial for the important February 27th South Carolina primary. Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has has already endorsed Rubio. South Carolina’s other Senator, Lindsay Graham, has endorsed Jeb Bush after scrapping his own Presidential bid.
