Jeff Miller: Race has “tremendous implications” for conservatism.

Republican Rep. Jeff Miller on Thursday joined the chorus of conservatives rallying behind Marco Rubio in Florida’s 2010 U.S. Senate race.

“This race has tremendous implications for the future of Florida and the very foundation of conservatism in America,” Miller said in a statement.  

“Marco Rubio possesses an impressive combination of idea-driven, principled leadership and the ability to communicate conservative values in ways that resonate at the kitchen table.”  

Miller became the second member of Congress to openly endorse Rubio, a former state House speaker, over the party establishment’s favored candidate in the race: Republican Gov. Charlie Crist .
