Romney To Receive Endorsement From One-Time Rival

For the second day in a row, Mitt Romney is expected to get an endorsement from a former rival.


For the second day in a row, Mitt Romney is expected to get an endorsement from a former rival.

Michele Bachmann, once a presidential hopeful herself, will endorse Romney at an event in Virginia Thursday afternoon.

Bachmann dropped out fairly early on in the primaries, after a disappointing showing in Iowa.

The endorsement could potentially help Romney with the most conservative in the GOP, who have long been suspicious of just how attuned to their positions he really is. Romney had a moderate record as Massachusetts governor, but has since moved further to the right, calling himself "severely conservative" earlier this year.

Bachmann's endorsement comes one day after Newt Gingrich dropped out of the race and told his supporters to vote for Romney.

    Bachmann and any of them were never and are not conservative. Ron Paul is the only small government candidate left, and he's won five states thus far as the votes are counted and delegates are awarded, but you won't see that on the tv. Get on the internet and think for yourself.

    It is no different than Sundar Katwala leaving the Fabian Society to join the Obama campaign.

    Romney is planning on selling America to the highest bidder for his own personal profit. Get ready for the other shoe to fall.

    @Nath -- I feel exactly the same way you do. Romney is the "Republican" candidate that the establishment allowed us to have. He is a flip flopping fake. I think he's another pro Muslim/Anti-Semetic politician. Morally I hate his guts but if he fixes us economically he will be a hero. And rightly so, all I've heard about this guy is how savy of a business man he is. We will see...

    Romney is a horrible choice for conservatives, but 100 times better for American than what we have now.
