Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy one of the wealthiest families in Michigan has decided to endorse Marco Rubio in his recent campaign. The family has for a long time been supportive of many Republican candidates through financing their campaigns and encouraging support from other people. The DeVos have financed Rubio but donating, at least, $21, 600 for the campaign. However, they remain neutral on who they are supporting in this season’s political campaign. Many still wonder what will happen if Trump and Cruz top in the campaign but DeVos among others have been pushing Kasich to drop out of the rally and give Rubio a better chance of winning.
Devos and his wife Betsy have known Rubio since 2006-2008 when he was together with them in supporting for increased choice of schools for Sunshine estate. The plea was passed and has greatly improved the performance of education in Florida. Devos Senior has however been funding Bush in the campaign with his wife Helen donating for Kasich. The family has been endorsing different candidates, but Dick says that the difference is because of the choice of individual trying to choose the best leader they see perfect in this case he and his wife are for Rubio.
