Source: Trump could help Romney with tea party support

(CNN) – The Romney campaign first learned of Donald Trump’s decision to endorse Mitt Romney about 24 hours before Trump introduced the presidential candidate at a Las Vegas Hotel. A senior Romney adviser says the flamboyant billionaire businessman essentially told Romney “Hey, I think you’re the best guy for the job and I want to make it public.”

Almost anything could happen with a mercurial guy like Donald Trump on board. He has endorsed and funded many Democrats in years past, and within the past 12 months, he flirted with a Republican presidential run, mocked Romney’s business credentials and changed his party affiliation to independent.

Las Vegas (CNN) - Sometimes the previews are better than the movie.

Gingrich trumped by 'the Donald'

Las Vegas (CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich got trumped by "The Donald" in Las Vegas when the mogul decided to throw his support behind Mitt Romney Thursday.

Both White House hopefuls are campaigning in Nevada ahead of the state's Republican caucuses on Saturday. Gingrich's two morning events – a speech at Xtreme Manufacturing and a meeting with Hispanic business leaders – were largely overshadowed by the news that Trump was endorsing Romney, his chief rival, on the Vegas strip.

Does Trump's endorsement really matter?

(CNN) - Just two days before the Nevada caucuses Donald Trump announced his presidential endorsement for Mitt Romney. But will the real estate mogul's stamp of approval mean anything to Republicans?

According to a survey conducted January 5-8 among 1,000 adults, by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press and The Washington Post, most Republican and Republican-leaning voters say a political endorsement by Trump doesn't make any difference to them.

(CNN) - Donald Trump continued to tease a potential presidential run by changing his voter registration Thursday from Republican to "unaffiliated" and publicly denouncing the behavior of members of his former party.

Michael Cohen, an aide to Trump, said the real estate mogul and reality television star made the switch "in order to preserve his right to run for president as an independent if he's not satisfied with who the Republicans nominate."
