(Breitbart) – Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has earned the support of conservative favorite Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who will join the freshman Senator for a three-day trip to Iowa to rally support for his campaign.
“Marco is a rock solid conservative and a strong leader we can trust,” Gowdy said in a statement proved to reporters. “I look forward to campaigning in Iowa with him, and introducing my good friend to voters across the state.”
Gowdy is a celebrity among many conservatives, thanks to his tough prosecutorial grilling of members of the administration officials during congressional hearings and because he has chaired the Benghazi investigative committee that centers on Hillary Clinton.
Gowdy will join Rubio for seven events in Iowa. He will likely officially announce his support at a campaign rally at the Pzazz! Convention and Event Center in Burlington, Iowa on Monday.
Gowdy’s announcement comes just as many grassroots conservative activists in the state have begun to coalesce around Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’s campaign. ACBS/YouGov poll of the state earlier this month showed Cruz earning 40 percent, followed by Donald Trump at 31 percent. Rubio fell to third place with 12 percent of the vote.
Tea Party in Florida falls for a closet RINO... again. Gowdy just last month "wowed" Florida conservatives and Tea party members at the Lincoln Dinner in Daytona Bch, Fl.
Only to turn around, a month later, and endorse the Tea party sell out and traitor Rubio for Potus.
While doing his "Rubio type" speech ( saying all the right things and leaving out all the real views) at the Dinner Gowdy never made mention of backing or praising Rubio. Gowdy was not in the dark about Rubio's sell out of Conservatives and Tea party in Florida that put Rubio in office. He conveniently didn't want to go there.....he knows the history.
RINOs always come out of the closet sooner or later. Gowdy has proudly shown himself to be another conservative sell out and establishment RINO.
The many Tea Party members and groups around Florida need to seriously work on their powers of discernment and stop falling so quickly for anyone calling themselves a conservative and saying all the right things.
Be aware that far to many Republicans are claiming and campaigning to be a conservative but are really progressives in their views and governing.
It would do the Tea Party well to start using their powers of discernment on DeSantis. He is not all he claims to be.
