Rick Crawford, Steve Womack, and Tim Griffin endorse Marco Rubio

Posted By on Wed, Feb 3, 2016 at 7:35 AM



We've been noting rumors that some of the top Arkansas lawmakers who had previously endorsed former Gov. Mike Huckabee would switch their support to Marco Rubio once Huckabee dropped out. 

The first wave has begun, reports the AP's Andrew Demillo. U.S. Reps. Rick Crawford and Steve Womack are endorsing Rubio, the campaign announced, as well as Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin

What about the governor? No word from Asa Hutchinson yet but for what it's worth, two of his nephews, state senators Jeremy Hutchinson and Jim Hendren, are backing Rubio. (Here's a full list of the state of Arkansas endorsements before Huckabee dropped out.)

For his part, Huckabee himself told Fox's Megyn Kelly (see video above) that he didn't have any intention of endorsing anyone "any time soon."  Kelly asked him point blank whether he would endorse Donald Trump when Trump comes to Little Rock; Huckabee brushed off those rumors and said he wasn't even going to be in Little Rock. I'd bet on the Huckster backing Rubio, who finished third in the Iowa caucuses, unless Bronze Medal Marco slips up in the states to come. Huckabee noted that his endorsement probably won't mean very much.
