Potential presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush have been picking up some early endorsements recently.

Florida’s Speaker of the House of Representatives, Steve Crisafulli, came out in support of Jeb Bush’s potential run for president in 2016.

Many have been coming out to support Mitt Romney as well. Representative Jason Chaffetz (UT- R), who backed Romney in 2012, has come out with a full-throated endorsement of Romney, saying that he “checks all the boxes.”

Some elected officials are keeping their options open just in case Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) decides to run. Representative Ros-Lehtinen (FL-R) told The Hill she was giving her early support to either Senator Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush, depending who decides to run.

With all of these people coming out to support Romney and Bush, the question is what does this mean for Rubio? Is he really going to run or is he going to sit it out this time?

He seemingly got the go ahead from his family, so we are just waiting for him to make an announcement either way.
