2012 Watch: Romney unveils more GOP endorsements

(CNN) – Mitt Romney continued his string of endorsements ahead of the midterm elections Tuesday, throwing his support behind a crop of Maryland Republicans.

The likely 2012 presidential candidate announced his backing of GOP gubernatorial nominee Bob Ehrlich, Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, and congressional candidates Andy Harris and Charles Lollar. Romney's Free and Strong America PAC will transfer $10,000 to Ehrlich's campaign, and $2,500 to the congressional campaigns.

The endorsements are part of Romney's effort to expand his influence in the GOP ahead of his likely presidential bid. The former Massachusetts governor has made similar endorsements in more than 30 states and pledged to visit 25 states before Election Day.

    Sure Mr. Romney, after 8 years of Bush and after 12 years of a Republican controlled Congress (Jan. 1995-Jan. 2007) we, Americans, are going to give Republicans power back?! Thanks but NO thanks!

    Question for America: What have the Republicans done for America? What? Be specific.

  2. Cheney and Armey are a couple of Dicks

    Mr. Mittens is going to get his $10,000 shoes dirty, if he is endorsing the tea baggers. No bagger will accept him as a real American until he stops being a Mormon.

  3. 36 Days until Socialism dies in the United States

    Romney would make a great President. He's got experience and knows how to get things done. To think that a majority of Americans voted for Obozo when he didn't have a lick of experience only shows how gullible and naive many people are.

    People... if it LOOKS LIKE SNAKE OIL, SOUNDS LIKE SNAKE OIL and SMELLS LIKE SNAKEOIL, you are dealing with a snakeoil salesman! SMARTEN UP and vote for somebody that has accomplished something... besides filling out government grant applications!

    @ 36 Days........ : You have no idea what socialism is! You, Republicans, shout "socialism" when you have NO ideas, NO new solutions! Thanks to the Republicans we were close to the 2nd Great Depression! YOU think, America, has forgotten 8 years of Bush? You think, we have forgotten who derailed our nation with TWO wars? Deficit spending? Lies..... etc.,? NO.

    Don't count your chickens before they hatch! IN NOvember America will vote NO for the Party of NO!

    Any healthy economy need 20% manufacturing job, and now we have only 6%. All gone to China and other countries. We are still bringing in worker with unlimited L1 and limited H1 visas that about half million a year, when we American do not have job. How these politicians are planning to improve that? We need to stop these outsourcing practice else we will suffer more.
