Breaking News… Rep. Thaddeus McCotter OUT of Pres. Race, Endorses Mitt Romney

Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI, 11th District) has dropped out of the presidential race. He has endorsed Mitt Romney. 9/22/11


National Review Online is reporting that Congressman Thaddeus McCotter has dropped out of the GOP presidential race. He has endorsed Mitt Romney:

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter told The Detroit News this afternoon that he is leaving the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

McCotter says he will give his support to former Massachussetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and will likely run again for the 11th District congressional seat he’s held since 2003.

(emphasis added)

UPDATE from USA Today:

McCotter, a Michigan Republican, told USA TODAY it became clear that he wasn’t going to be included in the debates – a fact that made mounting a national campaign difficult.

“We know the debates are validators,” he said.

McCotter said Romney’s business background played a large role in his decision to endorse him and that he thought the former Massachusetts governor was “the most electable candidate.”

Welcome to Team Romney, Rep. McCotter!

Looks like Michigan’s early primary (February 28th) is almost official.

Just in case anyone doesn’t know why that’s good news, Romney Dominates in Michigan. Arizona is planning on voting on the same day as Michigan and Mitt Romney has picked up key support in SE Valley and leads the state of Arizona in polling as well.

    Come on Rubio, West, Haley and Christie. Get on board or Perry will run away with this.We need something to stop Perry.

  3. Steve Foster says:

    Is anybody here helping to keep Wikipedia updated with these endorsements?

  4. Graham says:

    Is this the same McCotter that criticized Romney? Wonder what’s going on there. Oh well, we welcome the support.

  5. Rebel Ross says:

    McCotter supported Mitt last time and he was just trying to get some attention with his criticism of Mitt. McCotter is a smart congressman and he knows Mitt is the best candidate in the race. He also knows making an enemy of the next President of the United States is not a good idea.

  6. Sam says:

    I cannot believe McCotter endorsed Romney. He HATED him earlier in this race.

    He was the first person to say he should be Obama’s running mate.


    I’ll take ’em where I can get ’em though!

  7. Graham says:

    That was my assumption, Ross–Romney was #1, so criticizing him would get McCotter’s name a little higher in Google.

  8. Noelle says:

    Welcome aboard the Romney Train. There’s always room for more.
