Former New York Gov. George Pataki says he is endorsing Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's bid for the White House.
Speaking to FOX News Tuesday, Pataki said Rubio is the one candidate in either party with the ability to bring the American people together.
"Hillary Clinton is always dividing us for her benefit. Donald Trump is dividing us so he gets the benefit," he said. "Marco Rubio is going to bring us together, and make us understand we are all Americans with a common future."
The freshman senator from Florida is trailing in Iowa preference polls behind GOP rivals Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, but he has received more support than either candidate from members of the House and Senate.
