Romney leads Congressional GOP endorsements race

With a fresh endorsement today from a Michigan congressman, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney now leads his rival, Arizona Senator John McCain, by a 29-27 margin in congressional endorsements in the Republican presidential race, The Hill reports.
Representative Vernon Ehlers of Grand Rapids signed on after Romney's win in the Iowa straw poll last weekend.

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani ranks third, with 21 congressional supporters, followed by former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson, who has not yet officially entered the race and has 18 members of Congress supporting him, according to the Washington political newspaper's running tally.

Meanwhile Romney is in fourth in Michigan, losing to Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich, who won't even run.

The same state where his father was governor, and where he announced his candidacy... and he's losing to a guy who won't run?

Once Thompson gets in, just watch those endorsements start shooting up. Mitt's doing everything he should be, but still underperforming. I just don't think he can get it done.
