On the heels of Dennis Hastert’s announcement today that he would support Governor Romney, Roll Call has word that Minority Leader (it hurts to type that) John Boehner will likely do the same. Here’s the scoop:
Republican presidential hopeful and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is making a concerted effort to build a coalition of House Members to act as campaign liaisons, and early signs indicate that Romney is the likely favorite of a growing number of Republicans, including Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio).
Boehner has not endorsed Romney, but knowledgeable sources said the Minority Leader is leaning strongly in his favor.
“He likes him – a lot – but he’s not there just yet,” said one source.
