Endorsement Round Up

While campaigning with Senator Demint in South Carolina yesterday, Mitt Romney picked up the endorsement of former South Carolina Governor Jim Edwards, former U.S. Representative Tommy Hartnett, Republican National Committeewoman Cindy Costa, and a slew of other Charleston leaders.

Today, Romney announced that former Iowa House Speaker Brent Siegrist and former Congressional candidate Brian Kennedy will serve as advisers to his Presidential Exploratory Committee.

Romney also announced that James Bopp, Jr., a noted social conservative, will be advising his Presidential Exploratory Committee as Special Adviser on Life Issues.

A follow-up on the Jim Bopp endorsement by David Brody at CBN news:

"This is a big deal folks. Let me give you an analogy. It's like if you were competing against a half dozen players to become the starting point guard on your college basketball team (read: President of the United States) and Magic Johnson came out and said "I want this guy as my starting point guard." Well, people would take notice. And when you bring Jim Bopp in as your "Magic Johnson," you've just dunked in the face of your opponents."

I personally was unaware of Jim Bopp because I’m not a member of any of these pro-family organizations, but apparently it’s more significant than I first thought. The Bopp announcement and today’s endorsement by former senator Jim Talent could be a turning point for Romney in convincing conservatives.
