JEB JR:

Former Bush backers are rallying around Rubio (Ben Shull, 2/22/16, The Week)

Three Republican members of the U.S. House from South Florida -- Reps. Carlos Curbelo, Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen -- announced their support for Marco Rubio in a press conference today in Miami. The kicker? All three had backed Jeb Bush for president before the former Florida governor ended his campaign Saturday after a poor showing in the South Carolina primary.[...]

Politico reported yesterday that Nevada Sen. Dean Heller -- another erstwhile Bush supporter -- switched his allegiance to Rubio after the former Florida governor dropped out. Rubio has also recently won the backing of North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and, today, Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Orrin Hatch of Utah.

Sometimes you just have to settle.
