Mitt Romney Endorses John McCain

Posted on February 14, 2008

The Associated Press reports (see video below) that Mitt Romney is endorsing John McCain for the Republican presidential nomination. The AP says Romney will be asking his 280 delegates to support McCain. At a news conference Mitt Romney said now was a good time for Republicans to come together while the Democrats were still battling for the Democratic nomination.

Romney said, "Even when the contest was close and our disagreements were debated, the caliber of the man was apparent. Right now, the Democrats are fighting; let us come together and make progress while they are fighting."

John McCain's rivals Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul do not appear ready to concede. Mike Huckabee intends to continue his campaign and could make a Texas win very difficult for John McCain. Ron Paul recently released a video called Going the Distance where he says he plans to continue until someone gets enough delegates to win. In the video Ron Paul also mentions plans for a big march to Washington D.C.
