Marco Rubio renews commitment to backing Donald Trump if he's GOP nominee

@PatriciaMazzei

Marco Rubio sounded sure Wednesday that he could support Donald Trump as the Republican presidential nominee.

In an interview with South Florida radio station WIOD-AM (610), Rubio said he'd back whomever GOP delegates choose at their July convention.

"I've always said I'm going to support the Republican nominee," Rubio told host Jimmy Cefalo. "And that's especially true now that it's apparent that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic candidate."

Last time Rubio was asked the question, though, three days before he dropped his own presidential bid, the Florida senator wavered on whether he could stand behind Trump.

 

"I don't know," he said the Saturday before Florida's March 15 primary, his voice breaking. "Getting harder every day."
