We are in the middle of the silly season, and a lot of claims are being put out by all of the different camps running for the GOP nomination for president about endorsements. There is an excellent reference source to see the 2016 endorsements by Senators and Representatives at The Hill. This will provide the number of endorsements for each nominee, and they are constantly updating their list.

Let’s say you want to know if the ones making endorsements are campaign conservative chambercrats or if they are courageous consistent conservatives. There is an excellent reference to judge the quality of the ones making endorsements at Conservative Review.

If you don’t want to go through the research, then read on to see what we have collected.

There are 1 senator and 4 Representatives who have endorsed Donald Trump. Marco Rubio has endorsements from 14 Senators and 47 Representatives. Ted Cruz has endorsements from 1 Senator and 24 Representatives.
