John Bolton Breaks for Romney

John Bolton fact: He’s about to endorse Mitt Romney.

Former U.N Ambassador John Bolton is set to endorse Mitt Romney and will join his top team of foreign-policy advisers, according to people close to the campaign.

The move is a blow to Newt Gingrich, who is close to Mr. Bolton and said recently that he would nominate the former ambassador as his secretary of state were he to become president.

New Hampshire didn’t have to mean a whole lot. It’s a bluish state, voting ahead of any real red state with not very many delegates at stake, and was Romney’s back yard. But the ill considered Bain anti-capitalist attacks have made NH mean more than it should have, and Bolton breaking now for Romney lends him serious foreign policy strength.
