Weekly Standard:

Florida senator Marco Rubio made one of his most definitive and direct statements in support of Donald Trump yet during a candidate forum this weekend, all but sloganeering the words “elect Trump”.

“We have got to come together as a party. We cannot lose to Hillary Clinton. We cannot lose the White House,” Rubio said on Saturday, reports the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Then came the money line: “We have to make sure that Donald wins this election.”

Rubio’s call for Republicans to rally to Trump comes after the one-time White House hopeful ripped Hillary Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in real time Thursday. “So basically [the] ‘change’ Hillary offered is same Obama agenda but with more taxes, more [regulations], and an ‘intelligence surge’, whatever that means,” he tweeted as Clinton concluded her address in Philadelphia.

He also accused the Democratic nominee of “[accepting] socialism as her cause,” upon Clinton espousing Bernie Sanders’s agenda in unambiguous terms. “Your cause is our cause,” she told the Vermont senator Thursday.

Alongside his anti-Clinton stance, however, Rubio has become more pro-Trump in recent months, even if by default. “I want to be helpful. I don’t want to be harmful, because I don’t want Hillary Clinton to be president,” he told CNN in late May. “Look, my policy differences with Donald Trump, I spent 11 months talking about them.”
