Washington – Rep. Chris Stewart and House Speaker Greg Hughes are endorsing Sen. Marco Rubio in the presidential race, arguing the Florida Republican is the best candidate to put the country back on track.
Stewart, R-Utah, and Hughes, a Draper Republican, are two of the first high-profile Utahns to weigh in on the crowded presidential field with official endorsements. Sen. Orrin Hatch previously said he's backing ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
Stewart said in a statement that Rubio is a "true conservative" with a "bold plan" for the future.
