WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congress isn't very popular with the general public, but its members sure are with the Republican presidential contenders.

First Mitt Romney and now Herman Cain have come a-courting to Capitol Hill, hoping for potentially lucrative endorsements from Republican lawmakers who control vast political networks back home.

Romney is leading this race-within-a-race with more than 30 endorsements.

Cain is holding a series of meetings Wednesday to lock down his first official congressional supporters, but his visit to Washington has been shadowed by reports that two women filed sexual harassment complaints against him in the 1990s. Cain denies the charges and has pushed ahead with his schedule.

Rick Perry, meanwhile, may meet with conservatives soon. The other GOP candidates have a handful of endorsements among them.
