As Voters Head To the Polls, Both Candidates Announce Endorsements
All of the Republican presidential candidates are maneuvering for last minute boosts to their campaign today. Will new endorsements play a difference in how Alabama and Mississippi residents vote?
Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum certainly hopes so. He’s received a key endorsement in Alabama, unveiling the backing of the state’s governor, Robert Bentley, who “has told people that he is voting for Senator Santorum and he holds the values and principles he believes in.”
Mitt Romney may not have a local endorsement to tout today, but he does have multiple ones to influence the voters. And they’re from Santorum’s home turf. Romney is counting Pennsylvania Congressmen Bill Shuster and Charlie Dent as new supporters, making it clear that Santorum is struggling to make gains even with his own statesmen.
