After brutal name calling and low blows, it appears Marco Rubio and Donald Trump have called a truce, of sorts.
Rubio recently came to Trump's defense on Twitter, saying the protesters at Trump's rallies are "professional" and not violent, as he claims the media puts it. And now, Trump, who once said Rubio couldn't get elected "dogcatcher" in Florida, is urging the former presidential candidate to run for reelection there.
Poll data shows that @marcorubio does by far the best in holding onto his Senate seat in Florida. Important to keep the MAJORITY. Run Marco!
Rubio on CNN Thursday afternoon said he wants “to be helpful” to the GOP presumptive nominee, and will release his delegates to vote for Trump. Rubio also said he would be willing to speak on Trump’s behalf, adding that his political aspirations aren't over, calling it a "safe assumption" that he'll run for office -- the presidency or something else -- again.
This Rubio senate push feels like it's been orchestrated. Trump didn't just tweet about this out of thin air.
