Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is picking up a big Texas endorsement Tuesday — from Speaker of the House Joe Straus.

“The people of Texas are looking for a leader that will stand up to President Obama and clearly articulate conservative values. We’ve had enough of the out-of-control spending, government intrusion, and economic decline of the last three years,” Romney said in a release. “I look forward to working with Joe in the months to come as I outline my vision to restore America’s greatness.”

The Straus endorsement comes as a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll shows rival Rick Santorum with a huge lead in the Lone Star State, crushing both Newt Gingrich and Romney by double digit margins. Gov. Rick Perry, who withdrew from the presidential race late late last month, has endorsed Gingrich.

If I were Romney, I would tell Joe to keep his endorsement...Joe and his buddy Byron Cook are both closet Democrats and need to switch parties. Texas please wake up and vote these guys out!!!! Don't take my word...look up what both did regarding Sanctuary city legislation...Nothing...They say on it so it would die in committee purposely to appease cheap labor proponents in big cities. Our one hope is to elect TED CRUZ for US senate...he is the real deal conservative!!!!

Our RINO kisses up to the Michigan RINO.....two worthless teats on the GOP body!

Well, THAT should give Romney a boost. NOT!!!!

What Texan doesn't know how liberal Romney is ? So what does that tell you about the Speaker of the Texas House? I know what it tells me...the GOP is a sham.
