Mitt Romney trotted out a pair of big-name GOP endorsements Thursday to urge Republicans to close ranks around him but his main rivals refuse to abandon their own White House dreams.
Romney received the blessing of powerful Republicans past former President George H.W. Bush and present - popular Florida Senator Marco Rubio in a 24-hour span, further signaling that the GOP establishment wants the grueling primary process to end.
Romney even met with opponent Newt Gingrich over the weekend in New Orleans to ask for his support, but no deal was brokered, advisors to both men told NBC News.
Gingrich has vowed to stay in the race until the GOP convention in Tampa, but money woes have forced him to trim his staff and travel plans.
Even Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who has largely bankrolled the ex-Speakers Super PAC, said Gingrich has reached the end of his line.

The manipulations of the globalists
in their farcical charade of a SElection process have become so brazen.
Mitt Romney campaign called me yesterday. When I asked who it was and they told me I said “ YOU’VE GOT to BE KIDDING! NO WAY !!”
he knew better than to even talk further and hung up.
This really changes my mind about Romney.
FUMR and FUGHWB!
Right and it’s old news already but some find it important to waste bandwidth on the POS.
I’m still not voting for Romney.
I feel like I have been “Nailed”, and woke up with a sizable about of GHB in my system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma-Hydroxybutyric_acid
Thanks GOP establishment...
He won’t get my vote, even if The Pope endorses him....he’s a RINO, and a liar, to boot.
Half a loaf is better than none. If you don’t vote for the RINO you are giving half a vote to O’Bummer. If BO wins, he will have the power to pick all the new judges on SCOTUS, and many, many federal judges. Obamacare decision will be overturned, many “recess appointments” will be made. BO is already fixin’ to select all five members to the FEC.
If you don’t exercise you right to vote this Nov., and BO gets re-elected, you many soon not have the right to vote in a fair election. BO is anti-American, and anti-Western Civilization. I am not crazy about Romney but I will walk over glass to vote for him over BO.
LOL. Yeah. The GHWB endorsement that happened 5 minutes before I posted the story is "old news".
And Santorum is close behind Newt!
Endorsements at this point and time are useless. They won’t change a thing. Romney cannot clinch the nomination unless either Gingrich or Santorum drop out and that isn’t going to happen. Both Gingrich and Santorum have said that they are hoping for a brokered convention.
On April 1st, the delegates from Florida and any other state who held their primary or caucus before the date set by the GOP, will divided among the other candidates, so Romney will be losing a few delegates, rather than gaining them.
Frankly, I couldn’t be happier because as soon as Romney secures the nomination , I am expecting Obama to call for a state mandate to replace the federal mandate and for states to enact parts of the Obamacare law, necessary to put it into place.
Romney will be toast because most the conservatives don’t want anything to do with Obamneycare or Romneycare. The mandate was just the excuse to get rid of it.
Perfect set-up for the coming drive by Federals for MandateMitt unfunded-mandate for states to require fascist-care insurance .
Ever receive a state audit letter requiring you to sign and declare documented proof of automobile insurance?
The Federal-fascists propaganda deceivers will pattern it after this.
I think Wilson would qualify. HW qualifies but lies about it.
Actually Wilson was a fuzzy-headed one-worlder.
Don’t even waste your time with some of these people. Their hatred or mittens is so deep,they will probably vote for Hussein and would be thrilled if he beat romney. I barely recognize FR anymore, at times I think I am on DU.
Im sorry that Jesus Christ or the ghost of Ronald Reagan decided not to run, but there you have it and I’m not sure some here wouldn’t find faults with either or both of them.
LoL...Romney couldn’t get a deal with Newt!!! Alright!!! On to Tampa....!!!! Go Newt Go!!!!!
Romeny wants this sooo bad and he’s scared crapless he won’t get the delegates under his own speed....got ta have the endorsements now to get him over the line.
Come On Newt! Show em’ we aren’t going to follow...Go Newt Go...!!!!!!
Well it really is actually old news Lazlo...Bush Sr. said back in December he and Barbie were supporting Romney.....this is just more fanfare to give Romney the clout he didn’t get when in December their support didn’t do a thing...so this is a re-run.
Rommey CAN NOT BEAT Obama, we are again being set up by the
GOP-E, I am sick to death of their money choosing our candidate, WHY
should we take one for them AGAIN??? WHY should we not vote our
I'll write in a Conservative, and won't go along like others and accept whomever the GOP-e spoon-feed them as a Candidate.
Romney-the-RINO is KNOWN for having appointed Liberal Activists to spots when he was Governor, if you recall.
IF he is the Candidate, it's Obama, or Obama-Lite as the opponents.
You're gonna vote "Obama-lite", just so it's an (R)?
Well, Newbie, it's obvious that you're just a drone that votes for whomever the GOP-e selects for you, and you have no conservative principles to say "enough".
