Having already weathered attacks from Donald Trump supporters over his criticism of the Republican presidential front-runner, syndicated radio host Glenn Beck made it clear that there are several other White House hopefuls for whom he shares similar concerns.
According to Beck’s assessment, Rubio “is so far out of step with me with the NSA spying that I’m going to have a really hard time pulling the lever for him.”
He acknowledged endorsing Rubio’s view on “several issues” while noting that there are “several issues that I’m really going to have a hard time with.”
That being said, Beck noted that he would likely still cast a somewhat grudging ballot for the Florida senator.
“That’s not the same as I couldn’t pull the lever,” he said of his views toward Rubio, “—even with Hillary Clinton, even if it was Barack Obama’s third term, I couldn’t pull the lever for that guy.”
That is exactly how he feels, however, about “half of them.”
Specifically, there are six – in addition to the aforementioned Trump – on the list of candidates Beck said he would not support in a general election. They included Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Mike Huckabee, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham.
