The second-ranking Republican in the House is throwing his support behind Mitt Romney in the GOP presidential race.
Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia says Romney is the only candidate who has come out with "a bold pro-growth, pro-jobs plan for the future."
The endorsement from the House majority leader comes ahead of Tuesday's big vote in 10 states, including Cantor's home state of Virginia -- where only Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul qualified to be on the primary ballot.
Cantor says Romney is the candidate best able to create jobs, make people feel better about the future and beat President Barack Obama.
Cantor also tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that he's not interested in being considered as a running mate.
