Romney Wins the Endorsement Primary in a Landslide

If there was any lingering questions over whether the Republican establishment was worried about the possibility of President Newt Gingrich, they have been answered in recent days with an avalanche of endorsements for Mitt Romney. From South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to former Sen. Bob Dole to a bunch of newspapers, most notably The Des Moines Register, everybody seems to be coming off the sidelines. Gingrich might as well cry, "Uncle!'' at this point.

But there are a number of good gets still out there, should they choose to take sides. Off the top of my head: Arizona Sen. John McCain, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad would also be coups but they have said they won't endorse.
