MIAMI — Gov.
Jeb Bush, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio all held joint appearances Monday in Michigan, a state where Trump swept the Republican primary but whose voters have made up the majority of Trump’s support in the last month.
The trio spoke to about 1,000 people at a rally in Detroit, the first time they have held such a joint event since their primary victories.
“We have a lot of good candidates, a lot to do and I think the American people deserve a lot more of the answers,” Bush said.
“They deserve to know if Donald Trump’s not the answer to the world’s problems.
We need more people like him in this country.” “
I know that he is going to be in Michigan tonight, and I’m sure he will continue to make the case for his policies.
We need more people like him in this country.”
Trump is scheduled to campaign in the state Thursday evening, and the two other GOP candidates have not yet announced plans to campaign.
Bush, a former Florida governor, is not scheduled to hold a rally.
Rubio, who has made his name in the Rust Belt and is vying for the nomination in Florida, has not announced a campaign.
Cruz, who is also in Florida but has not formally declared, has held a number of rallies and events since he dropped out of the presidential race.
Rubio’s son, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, has said he will be in Detroit to attend a fundraiser.
“He’s going to have a huge rally tonight in Detroit,” Bush told the crowd.
Rubio is scheduled for an event later in the day in Ann Arbor, and a campaign spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Bush and Cruz, both of whom are considered front-runners for the GOP nomination, are both considered favorites to win the Republican nomination.
The three have each campaigned heavily in the region and each are known to hold fundraisers on their own.
Rubio has received praise from the governor for his support of his state and his willingness to fight for it.
Bush has focused his attacks on Trump’s business dealings and immigration policies.
Cruz has campaigned in New Hampshire, where he won a stunning upset victory in the 2016 GOP primary.
The senator is a former businessman who was one of Trumps first presidential rivals, and he is a potential rival for the party’s nomination should Trump drop out.
