Rubio campaign disputes HuffPo report about Romney endorsement

Marco Rubio's campaign is pushing back against a Huffington Post article that Mitt Romney will endorse Marco Rubio.

"Well that report is false," Rubio said on CNN this morning. "I have no reason to believe that he is anywhere near endorsing. We'd love to have his endorsement.

Rubio strategist Todd Harris tweeted in reply to HuffPo article: "It would be quite a bizarre endorsement roll out strategy: Don't tell us, and break news in Huffington Post."

Harris did not directly respond to the Miami Herald this morning.

From HuffPo:

"Details of Romney's endorsement were still being worked out as of Sunday morning. The sources said that the former Massachusetts governor had been eager to provide his backing to Rubio for days but had hesitated, due to his respect for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), who suspended his campaign on Saturday night following his dismal fourth-place showing in the South Carolina primary. 

Romney spent the day in Utah on Saturday and could potentially be in position to bestow his blessing upon Rubio before Tuesday's Nevada Republican caucuses--a contest that Romney won easily in both 2008 and 2012."
