Rand Paul's Heart No Longer Belongs to Daddy, Endorses Romney
In a surprising announcement on today's Hannity Show, Rand Paul has endorsed Mitt Romney even before his father has dropped out of the presidential race:
"Well, you know, my first choice had always been my father. ... He is still my first pick," Paul said, according to a rush transcript of the appearance. "But now that the nominating process is over, tonight, I am happy to announce I am supporting Governor Romney."
"Over the past three and half years, President Obama has made government more and more of a presence in our lives, and Americans can’t afford four more years of the same failed policies," Romney said. "As president, I will reform the federal government and make it smaller, simpler, and smarter. I am grateful for Sen. Paul’s support and look forward to working with him to get America back on the right track."
Next question: what will Father Ron's myriad devotees do? It's obvious the son trusts Romney enough to throw in with him. Will they?
The crystal ball says... yes.
