Rubio tweets congratulations to “great pick” Rendo

Kim Guadagno’s choice for her running mate, Mayor Carlos Rendo, got a high profile Twitter shout out on Thursday from one of America’s better-known Republicans faces:

The pair share not just a political party and Cuban ancestry but also campaign ties; Rendo co-chaired Senator Marco Rubio’s 2016 New Jersey presidential leadership team and hosted a fundraiser for Rubio’s U.S. Senate reelection campaign later that year.
