A billionaire just threw his money and his weight behind Sen. Marco Rubio.

Disgruntled Senator Marco Rubio nabbed himself a big fish when billionaire Paul Singer jumped on his bandwagon to funnel millions of dollars towards his campaign.

NY Times:

One of the wealthiest and most influential Republican donors in the country is throwing his support to Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, a decision that could swing millions of dollars in contributions behind Mr. Rubio at a critical point in the Republican nominating battle.

The decision by the donor, Paul Singer, a billionaire New York investor, is a signal victory for Mr. Rubio in his battle with his rival Jeb Bush for the affections of major Republican patrons and the party’s business wing.

It comes as a major blow to Mr. Bush, who is seeing his once vigorous campaign imperiled by doubts among supporters, and whose early dominance of the race was driven by his financial muscle. Mr. Bush and several other candidates, including Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, had competed fiercely for Mr. Singer’s blessing.

Even though Rubio's poll numbers are not close to Trump's or Carson's, Singer is betting that hey will flame out and marco will fill the void. Not one of these candidates has offered up any real policy legislation except of course to attack the librul media and call every tough question they get, left wing propaganda.

The sickness of Citizens United continues to leave a stench on our political process.
