Florida 2012 groundwork? Romney endorses McCollum, 13 other GOPers

by George Bennett | June 14th, 2010



Mitt Romney will headline a Coral Gables fund-raiser for Attorney General and Republican governor candidate Bill McCollum tonight. McCollum, state chairman for Romney rival Rudy Giuliani during the 2008 presidential race, finds himself trailing his GOP primary race against millionaire Rick Scott.

Romney’s also endorsing 13 other Republican candidates around the state and his Free and Strong America PAC is contributing $5,000 to the Republican Party of Florida.

U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Tequesta, and Senate President and Chief Financial Officer candidate Jeff Atwater, R-North Palm Beach, are among the candidates getting Romney endorsements.

Romney will also be in Jacksonville Tuesday to raise money for state Sen. and state GOP Chairman John Thrasher.

Romney says he’ll decide after the 2010 elections whether he’s running for president in 2012. If he makes a White House bid, he’ll want to have Republican friends in Florida.

    I was afraid Romney might get delusional and in a fit of rage come to his senses and endorse Rick Scott. That would have been the kiss of death! After all Mitt Romney and his Boston Mafia invented Obamacare. tried it out on the elderly and otherwise disadvanteged of Mass. He done the right thing he chose the right candidate to endorse, McColldumd and Romney are two of a kind, two losers!
    I would neve want the likes of Romney endorsing anyone or anything of honesty!
