(CNN) - Less than a week after backing Florida Senate candidate Marco Rubio's bid for office, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced another endorsement Thursday.
The former Massachusetts governor is backing nine-term Michigan Rep. Pete Hoekstra in his bid for Michigan's governorship.
"For too long, Michigan has suffered with high unemployment and job loss," Romney said in a statement released by his Free and Strong America PAC. "It is critical that we elect pro-growth conservative leaders who will keep taxes low, cut wasteful spending and create jobs. Pete Hoekstra has the capability and the right policies to get Michigan's economy moving again."
Romney's PAC also announced that he would attend a fundraiser for Hoekstra in Grand Rapids, Michigan on April 28.
