Karl Rove donates to Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush neutral. Does that confirm my hunch?
Over the past few weeks, Florida GOP Gov. Charlie Crist has found himself being put on the defensive more and more in the primary thanks to the challenge by ex-state House Speaker Marco Rubio. While Crist has financially overwhelmed Rubio to date, there are many Republicans -- particularly those in Flordia that are close to former GOP Gov. Jeb Bush -- who have publicly become more comfortable airing their skepticism about Crist in public. One of those Republicans with close ties to the Bush family, Karl Rove, has signaled his preference with his wallet. Rove confirms to NBC News that he has contributed a $1000 to Rubio's campaign, the donation will be made public when Rubio files his next FEC report (due Oct. 15)... This comes on the heels of Jeb Bush's public signal that he plans to stay neutral in the Crist-Rubio primary; Many believe this is Jeb's way of quietly telling influential Florida Republicans that he'd prefer Rubio but doesn't want to alienate Crist since he's still the heavy favorite in the primary.
Needless to say, Jeb Bush is a strong supporter of massive immigration and amnesty; Rove was probably the "evil genius" (so to speak) behind George W Bush's loose borders and amnesty/guest workers efforts. Neither one of them would support someone who opposes massive immigration and amnesty, strongly giving credence to my hunch that Marco Rubio supports massive immigration, whether of the guest worker or amnesty variety.
