Mitt Romney Picks Up Endorsements from Ros-Lehtinen and Diaz-Balarts
Marco Rubio may be South Florida's star Cuban-American politician, but he's not endorsing anyone in the presidential primary. So, the Republican endorsement prize in these parts is, as it's been for quite some time, picking up the backing of Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart and retired Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart. Mitt Romney won that endorsement prize this morning as he swooped into Miami to make an appearance with the trio.
"Mitt Romney believes that America is an exceptional nation and has a strategy to restore our country's greatness," Ros-Lehtinen said in a statement. "The Romney plan for economic growth will create jobs and opportunities for all, especially for South Floridians, who are passionate in their pursuit of the American dream."
