More New Jersey elected officials said count them signed up for the Marco Rubio rodeo: including Mahawah Councilman Rob Hermansen, the former Bergen County freeholder.
Today he also picked up Point Pleasant Councilman Michael Thulin, Jr., Springfield Mayor Jerry Fernandez, Englewood Cliffs Mayor Mario Kranjac, Madison Councilman Patrick Rowe, Carlstadt Councilman Jim Lenoy, Hasbrouck Heights Council President David Gonzalez, Caldwell Councilman John Cascarano, and Frenchtown Mayor Brad Myhre.
Locked in a phone booth fight last night with Texas Senator Ted Cruz for second place in the Nevada Republican Presidential Primary, which he won, Rubio is trying to coalesce support for a run at Trump ahead of next’s week’s Super Tuesday contests.
Trump destroyed the rest of the Republican field in Nevada last night.
For what it’s worth, Rubio has more local support here in New Jersey, documented yesterday on PolitickerNJ.
