Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., may be out of the presidential race for the White House, but he still seems to be following the orders of his former Republican donors.

Rubio has yet to throw his support behind either GOP front-runner Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, or Ohio Gov. John Kasich. But, there could be a reason for that.

In a report by the New York Times, a Republican strategist said Rubio “has been discouraged by some party financiers from supporting Mr. Cruz” while making “thank-you calls” to his donors following his exit.

“Without Mr. Rubio’s imprimatur, many of his backers seem disinclined to back Mr. Cruz,” the New York Times report noted.

The report also hinted that Rubio is already eyeing another presidential bid in 2020 should the GOP lose the 2016 election to Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton.

The revelation comes as Trump continues to dominate national polls, specifically after Rubio dropped out of the race.

As BizPac Review reported at the time, party elites assumed Rubio supporters would in-large back Cruz against Trump, though that does not seem to be the case.
