Former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl is endorsing Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, The Arizona Republic
Kyl praised Rubio's "sunny" disposition and his foreign policy acumen.
"I came to respect him as a real expert in matters related to our national security. He is on the Intelligence Committee and the Foreign Relations Committee. He knows the subject very well, and he also has very good instincts about what we should do."
Kyl, whose term overlapped with Rubio for two years, said Rubio took on a contentions immigration battle as part of the Gang of Eight. Despite the failure of the efforts, "he didn't shy away from the issue. People looked to him for leadership, and he provided it," Kyl said.
"Not everybody was happy with the proposals that he actually supported, but there's an old saying in politics: 'You can't get something without giving something.' If you want to just have it your way all the time, you're never going to get anything done."
