Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) "is close to endorsing" Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), "but the two proud senators — and recent fierce rivals — have some details to work out first. Cruz has to ask for the Rubio’s endorsement, and both sides need to decide that it will make a difference, according to sources familiar with the thinking of both senators."

Asked about a Cruz endorsement, Rubio said, “I don’t have any announcement on that today."

But he added, “There’s time to prevent a Trump nomination, which I think would fracture the party and be damaging to the conservative movement." (Politico)

VEEPSTAKES. Rubio ruled out being any candidate's vice president.

"I'm not interested in being vice president. I don't mean that in a disrespectful way," he said. (The Hill)
