MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Florida Senator Marco Rubio has garnered a key endorsement in his run for the White House.

On Thursday, The Miami Herald announced it is endorsing Rubio’s campaign for president. According to the Herald editorial board, Rubio is the best choice to unite a fractured Republican party.

Rubio was in town on Wednesday casting his vote in at the West Miami City Hall where he launched his political career.
