Gov. Bob McDonnell (VA) backs Romney

Not much coverage of any positive Romney developments here, so as one of the at least 30% of the partisan GOP electorate supporting Governor Romney I’ll post this good news:

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell announced he was backing GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Friday, saying his support could help Romney win Saturday’s hotly-contested South Carolina primary.

“I’m a Southern governor endorsing Mitt Romney in the first Southern state primary,” McDonnell said on CNN’s “Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien.”

McDonnell is campaigning with Governor Romney in South Carolina today. We all know it’s going to be close and these kinds of news help even if a little bit. Hope tomorrow’s results are positive as well.
