Former secretary of State Condoleezza Rice weighed in on some of the Republican Party’s potential 2016 presidential candidates, giving praise to Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. After serving in the administrations of both presidents named Bush, Rice is naturally a little partial about Jeb, the former Florida governor. Rice, who has been endorsing 2014 Senate candidates and helping them raise money, called Rubio “a fantastic young presence” in the Republican Party. She said she’ll be looking for a presidential candidate who “understands the importance to this country of immigration and immigration reform” — an issue that has been dear to both Bush and Rubio.
