Michigan Republicans Want Rubio for Veep

September 25, 2011
No other individual finished above five percent, including such inside-the-Beltway favorites as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (two percent), Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (two percent), Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (less than one percent) and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (less than one percent). Lorraine Robinson, of Farmington Hills, Mich., said she chose Gingrich as her preferred vice presidential nominee because, while she likes Gingrich, she has concerns about his electability at the top of the ticket. "I don't think he can win as president," Robinson said. Sandy Grulke, also of Farmington Hills, added that Gingrich "would be a great adviser to any president." Jeff Horton, of Hillsdale, Mich., also said Rubio and Ryan were his two top choices for Vice President. Rubio is "on his way up," he said, and Ryan's perch as a committee chairman makes him more valuable in his current post. Ryan "is far better off staying right where he is," said Horton. The National Journal Hotline/National Association of Home Builders Straw Poll was conducted Friday and Saturday at the conference, with 681 voting-age conference attendees participating.
