Former Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole was sad to see his "good friend" Jeb Bush suspend his campaign for the White House over the weekend, but has already picked a new candidate to endorse.
Dole, a former senator, revealed in an interview with ABC's Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein on Monday that he's backing Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida now.
"He worked for my '96 campaign in Dade County, Florida, and so I've had an acquaintance with him way back in '96 when he was a hard worker. As much as I love John Kasich, you know, Rubio is probably a better candidate. And he's young," Dole said in the interview. "He wants to grow the party as opposed to Cruz. I don't know what he wants to grow."
