Super Tuesday is today. Below are the endorsement counts in 11 of these states. Note that Alaska and Colorado Republicans have made no endorsements of the 5 currently running candidates.
The pattern is clear: Marco Rubio is the overwhelming leader in 9 of 11 of these states. Ted Cruz has the endorsement lead in his home state of Texas, as well as Wyoming.
Rubio’s endorsement lead amongst the variety of Super Tuesday states is a testament to the idea that he is the most acceptable to most of the Republican party’s factions, as opposed to Ted Cruz.
Trump and Carson are complete non-entities when it comes to Super Tuesday endorsements, though of course they don’t seem to care much. Presumably Kasich does — and the party signal here is very clear, apart from 2nd place in states like Massachusetts and Virginia.
Two endorsements — both Marco Rubio.
