Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal endorsed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for president Friday on Fox News. Jindal dropped out of the Republican presidential race in November after being consistently stuck at 1 or 2 percent in most national polls.
“Marco can unify our party,” Jindal said on Fox. “I think he’s a principled conservative. I think he’s the right guy.”
Earlier Friday, the Las Vegas Review-Journal endorsed Rubio for Nevada’s Republican caucuses, which are scheduled for Feb. 23. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who exited the race Wednesday, also announced his support for Rubio this week.
"We decided that we wanted to find a candidate that really espoused the values that we believed in, someone who really focused their campaign on trying to help ... those who are struggling on the margins," Santorum said, CNN reported. "That's why we decided to support Marco Rubio.”
