Dick DeVos of the prominent DeVos family of Michigan has revealed that the DeVos family will now be firmly backing Marco Rubio in his bid to become the Republican nominee for president. The news comes after the DeVos family was neutral after the suspension of the presidential campaign of Jeb Bush. After supporting former Florida governor Jeb Bush, and then being neutral in Republican race, the family has said they are fully committed to supporting Marco Rubio’s campaign for presidency.
Dick DeVos has revealed that both he and his family will be making considerable financial contributions to Marco Rubio’s campaign. In Devos’ own words, Marco will get significant funding and endorsements from us, but it will be ultimately up to him to build his momentum and attract new voters to his cause. Dick DeVos firmly believes Marco Rubio has what it takes to be the next president of the United States. So far he has gotten some momentum under his belt after winning the Puerto Rican primary. The Michigan primary is only two days away on the 8th of March.
Dick says that he knows Marco Rubio from the time when Marco Rubio served in the Florida House of Representatives. Mr. Devos clearly recalls how he and then house representative Rubio discussed the issue of education which Marco and DeVos agreed on. Both he and Marco agree that more choices in the form of vouchers and charter schools should be given to parents of children. Common core, they also believe should be scrapped.
Besides contributing to political campaign on the Republican side, Dick DeVos is a philanthropist and has a big heart when it comes to education and well being of children. Mr. Dick DeVos helped found and fund a school that is focused on teaching children aviation and preparing them for exciting careers in the field of aviation as pilots, engineers and mechanics.
