Romney Endorses McCain

Mitt Romney, after a contentious campaign, has just endorsed his former GOP rival Sen. John McCain’s bid for the White House.

Mitt Romney, after a contentious campaign, has just endorsed his former GOP rival Sen. John McCain’s bid for the White House. With his endorsement Romney has urged the 286 delegates that he won — before he suspended his candidacy — to support McCain.

At his campaign headquarters in Boston with John McCain at his side, Romney said “I am honored today to give my full support to John McCain for president…I’m officially endorsing his candidacy and asking my delegates to give him their support.”

“This is a man capable of leading our country at a dangerous hour,” said Romney while stressing the need to unite the Republican Party for the sake of winning a national campaign. “Right now the Democrats are fighting. Let’s all come together,” he said.

Romney introduced McCain as the next president of the United States. “We move forward together for the good of our country and the good of our nation,” said McCain.

According to CNN McCain’s delegate count before Romney’s endorsement was 827, if all of Romney’s delegates were to support McCain his count would rise to 1,113 just 78 short of the 1,191 needed to secure the nomination. Delegates are not officially locked into supporting McCain.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee — McCain’s running mate — has said that he will continue on with his campaign.
