Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), tea party favorite and son of presidential candidate Ron Paul, has officially endorsed Gov. Mitt Romney. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is still in the presidential race, but his campaign has admitted this week that he lacks the delegates to win the nomination. Gov. Romney expressed
his appreciation for Senator Paul’s endorsement:
"'Sen. Paul has been a leading voice in the effort to scale back the size and reach of government and promote liberty,' he said. 'I am grateful for Sen. Paul’s support and look forward to working with him to get America back on the right track.'"
