Money may not be buying Mitt Romney much Republican love, but it’s going a long way toward helping him buy the next best thing: endorsements in the GOP primaries.

Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC and its affiliates states have lavished close to $1.3 million in campaign donations to federal, state and local GOP politicians, almost all since 2010. His recipients include officials in the major upcoming primary states of New Hampshire and South Carolina, and in three southern Super Tuesday states where he was trounced four years ago.

we have a congress with a low approval rate for the last few decades.. so really does anyone care who they endorse?

I personally wouldn't even have wasted the effort to look it up... but then again only a person wanting to follow* would care what they think..

If you could comprehend_ you would understand I'm not an R cult or Romney follower--- but he has been endorsed by your cult- probably will be your cults chosen champion- and probably has the best chance of beating Obama...

But as is becoming usual also- the chosen champions of your cult and their leadership are not the best candidates overall... But they have a pretty sad group to choose from... :wink: :(

if the so-called cult endorses a leader, and no one cares.. let alone follows their lead,.. then it ain't a cult...

I like most American conservatives don't care what a group of DC insiders think let alone endorses,,, unlike another on here who has posted the same list several times..
