Former President George H. W. Bush will formally endorse Mitt Romney on Thursday in Houston.
The endorsement comes a week after one of the former president’s sons, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), endorsed the GOP front-runner. Former first lady Barbara Bush has also endorsed him.
In December 2011, the elder Bush indicated his support for Romney, calling the former Massachusetts governor “the best choice for us.”
