According to recent polls, David Jolly is the front runner in Florida’s GOP U.S. Senate race. Any hopes, though, that political capital would be lent to a presidential candidate were dashed Tuesday night.

Max Goodman, Jolly’s political director, sent out the briefest possible statement: “Rep. David Jolly will not be endorsing in the Florida primary.”

Many Florida Republicans are locked in behind Rubio. Jolly, however, is not one of them.
