But it could also be a boon for Rubio in Iowa, where Gowdy is joining him for two days of campaigning this week, lending the Florida senator considerable conservative credibility.

Trump, the front-runner in the Republican race, needled Trey Gowdy for his role as chairman of the House of Representatives select committee investigating the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed.

Real-estate mogul Donald Trump tops the list with 39 percent support, and Ted Cruz placed second with just under 14 percent support.

According to a Reuters/Ipsos survey ended on December 29, Rubio stands in third place among the candidates for the Republican nomination for the November 2016 presidential election with 12 percent.

Rubio already has endorsements from fellow Republican Sens.
