    Trump Nabs Endorsement From Scott Brown

    (Published Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2016)

    Donald Trump is putting a positive spin on his 2nd place finish in Iowa despite predicting he’d win.

    “What happened is we had 17 candidates originally…I ended up coming in 2nd…didn’t devote tremendous time to it, didn’t devote tremendous money to it,” noted Trump.

    Trump did seem unhappy that much of the focus following Iowa has been on a perceived failure on his part and much of the positive reaction has been for Marco Rubio.

    “He comes in third, I come in second, Trump no good…Rubio unbelievable night, unbelievable victor," joked Trump.

    Before speaking with thousands at a rally in Milford, New Hampshire Tuesday night, Trump did earn the endorsement of former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, even though the two do not see eye to eye on every issue.

    Trump says he’s spent about 14 to 15 million dollars on the campaign, and going forward he has unlimited funds.

    Trump says he’s adding events to his schedule in New Hampshire leading up to the primary, but will be in Arkansas tomorrow for a rally.
