Romney's Push For Hill Support "Picking Up Steam"
Jonathan Martin at the Politico is reporting today that "Mitt Romney's courting of House Republicans for his presidential bid is picking up steam. He seems to be on the verge of picking up the support of some prominent members of Alabama's congressional delegation. Of these sort of Hill endorsements, Martin writes:
Individually, picking up Hill endorsements may not move a lot of votes. Collectively, though, such backing makes a statement about where some of the most prominent figures in the party are headed. Winning support from so many congressional Republicans so early in 1999 helped then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush create a much-sought sense of inevitability in his presidential bid.
