Florida 2012 groundwork? Romney endorses McCollum, 13 other GOPersby George Bennett | June 14th, 2010
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.
