House Majority Leader Eric Cantor endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Sunday because, he said, Romney is the best candidate to improve the economy.

"Mitt Romney is the only candidate who has a pro-growth, pro-jobs plan for the future," Cantor said on NBC's Meet the Press. He added: "[Romney] will best be able to lead this economy back to a growth mode."

Throughout his interview, Cantor attempted to focus on the economy, and praised Romney as being the only candidate to put forth a "bold plan" to increase jobs and reduce regulatory red tape.

 

Cantor represents Virginia, which is one of 10 states voting on Super Tuesday, March 6. While Cantor said he expects Romney to take all of Virginia's delegates, only Romney and Rep. Ron Paul are on the ballot there.

The Majority Leader also quelled rumors that he is on the short-list of possible vice presidential picks.

"This is about Mitt Romney and making sure he is put in to office," he said. "I'm not open to [running as vice-president]."
