Joe Straus, Texas Speaker, Endorses Mitt Romney for President
See details here in the Texas Tribune.
The article discusses a recent poll showing Rick Santorum with a large lead in Texas for the GOP nomination, over Gingrich and Romney.
I can’t say this is a surprise to me. If I had to guess before who Joe Straus might endorse, my first pick would be Romney as many people believe Romney is the more “moderate” of the three candidates leading the field and Joe Straus is often labeled as a moderate as well, particularly on social conservative issues.
