Could a Rubio Veep Candidacy Help New Jersey’s Kyrillos Win?
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Marco Rubio says he doesn’t want it, Save Jerseyans. His actions tell another story; for example, he was barnstorming with Mitt Romney yesterday in battleground Southeastern Pennsylvania ahead of tomorrow’s Keystone State primary.

REPORTS: Christie Cash and Support Rolls Over to Romney

Zip. Nada. Let’s face facts: the GOP is staring down an internal culture divide heading into January.
