Dick and Betsy Devos Struggle to Find Candidate

Dick DeVos has previously expressed his interest in the campaign of Florida Senator Marco Rubio. The reason he gave for his support of the Florida Senator was that he believed that the senator represented true conservative values and had fresh ideas for the party. Dick Devos’ support of Marco Rubio caused the senator’s campaign to gain traction, but ultimately the senators could not continue to make a bid for president if he could not win in his own state of Florida. Marco Rubio lost the republican presidential primary in Florida to Donald Trump, who won 46% of the vote. Although it seems that half of the state was supporting Donald Trump and the other half did not, the other republican nominees divided the votes in Florida, leaving Rubio with only 26% of the vote. After this failure, Rubio suspended his campaign, leaving Dick Devos without a major candidate to support.
Since Rubio and other Republican Nominees have left the GOP race, the Devos family has had difficulty choosing a campaign to support. The remaining candidates for the republican nomination are Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. While Ted Cruz is expected to take the majority of the evangelical right wing vote, Donald Trump is expected to win the nomination. Because these candidates do not seem to represent the values that Dick Devos finds important, he has had trouble finding a candidate to back. Though he has expressed his unwavering support of the Republican party, Dick Devos has stated that he will not be funding any major republican presidential campaigns at this time.
The Devos family has stated that they will continue to support the Republican Party on a large scale, regardless of their disdain for the current nominees. Dick Devos has expressed his opinion that regardless of the particular candidate that represents the party’s presidential nomination, he believes that the conservative party holds great ideas that will drastically improve the country. As a man who has a history of activity in the political arena, Dick Devos has seen his share of politicians come and go. He has remained dedicated to the conservative cause for many decades. Both Dick Devos and his wife Betsy have recently stated that they will support the republican nominee for president by attending events and raising awareness even if they are not financially involved in the campaign. They believe that both of the remaining candidates will make better presidents than the projected Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
