Cantor Endorses Romney

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) endorsed Mitt Romney for president and said that he is not interested in the vice-presidency.

Cantor, the majority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives and the highest-ranking Jewish legislator in U.S. history, said that Romney is the best candidate to bring about an economic turnaround.

His endorsement, reported Sunday by the Associated Press, comes two days before “Super Tuesday,” when voters in 10 states go to the polls in primaries.

Cantor, who was considered as a possible running mate by the 2008 GOP nominee, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), said he is not in the running this year.
