Headline: Mitt Romney Set to Endorse John McCain

Mitt Romney is expected to endorse John McCain in Boston today at 3:30 p.m. It's expected that he will also give his 280-290 delegates to bolster McCain's total.

As Romney represents the more conservative wing of the Republican Party, this act could signal that the party is willing now to stand behind the more independently-minded McCain, and present a united front.

Are you surprised? Is this the right move for the Republican race?

In Mass on talk radio they are saying that Romney is giving his support to McCain to push him ahead, possibly knock out Huck, and prevent Huck from saying "see I was the number two candidate all along" when and if he ever gets enough delegates to surpass Romney. Even though Romney would not have been competing for delegates in the last 6 states. Also, no one here thinks Romney is going for the VP slot.

i'm still not over rudy dropping out. i don't really ever like political candidates, but i liked him. i mean... yeah i know.. he's got some problems. but whatever. i mean... it probably was the right move in the end. maybe? i just filled out my voting ballot the other day! absentee all the way!

"I didn't know you were allowed to give your delegates away. lol" - It's not quite that simple, and it really depends on the state, but you'll notice most people running for the Nom don't officially quit, they "suspend" their running. This way, in certain states, they can retain control over the delegates they have won. All-in-all, it really comes down to the rules of the states.

Right tresjolie - so what's in supporting McCain for Romney?... anyone have any insight for us? VP spot is not a valid response...

i heart monster- I love conspiracy theories! I do think there's more going on in the back room; you know Mitt Romney never did anything that he wouldn't gain from! But VP? No. The two of them can't stand each other.

Oh I totally agree with you tresjolie. No chance for either of them!

You guys, don't you think it's a little naive to think he is seriously going for the VP? There's no chance a disliked Governor of Massachusetts, who called the nominee a liberal on several occasions, is getting that spot. Huck has exhausted himself with the public and ruffled the feathers with his Party. Neither is getting it, and they both know it at this point.

I don't get it - I think McCain has something on Romney really. Why else would he drop out and be all "it's what's best" about it? Plus at the last debate - how flustered was Romney about McCain's "lies." Made me think even then that there was something else going on. Call me a conspiricist, whatever - just seems like there's more than meets the eye, and that Romney would endorse Huckabee before McCain if he could since their stands on issues are so much closer than Romney and McCain's. Whew. Run on sentence there. Sorry. I personally hate McCain's politics - growing up in a state that he neglected as its senator and all. I can't think of one good thing he's done for Arizona and yet - he still won this state - go figure. Seems like a good guy and all... and he's definitely a war hero, just not my pick for prez.

I don't think he'll take Huck. Huckabee has been talking about getting tattooed and touring with Amy Winehouse, which will loose the conservative vote.

I think Huck has a better chance at VP since he is so conservative, that might pacify the far righters...

**Unless Huck stays in there and chooses Colbert as /his/ running mate, of course! =P

icterp... yes. Romney is hoping for a VP slot, but he probably won't get it. People just hate him too much. Huckabee has a better chance of being McCain's running mate.

He is looking for a new chance to run for President down the line, and he want the Party to see what a good little boy he is. Team player and all. Uniter. And then they will take care of him in the future.

I think he's doing it for two reasons. (1) Trying to unite the party and (2) Possibly looking for the VP slot.

mymellow - i think he just pushed the easy button and thats where he showed up... i'm so bummed! esk is right, its what he said he would do, so i'm not surprised. i'm just bummed that john mccain is the inevitable nominee!
mymellowman mymellowman 9 years
I can't really see anyone being surprised about this. What is surprising, from the looks of the picture from Fox News, he's doing the endorsement from a Staples or OfficeMax. Things to do list: Get Ballpoint Pens Get Paper Endorse McCain Get one of those Big Red Staples Buttons they're always advertising

makes sense, and goes along with everything he said when he dropped out of the campaign about wanting to do whats best for the party, and not have the party divided between candidates
