DeMint joins the Romney bandwagon

The Associated Press is confirming the rumor of the past couple of days, that South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint is endorsing Romney for President.

That's a huge get for Romney in the crucial early primary state. It also probably means that SC Governor Mark Sanford -- who I think would have been a formidable candidate -- is not going to change his mind about not running for President.

DeMint helps Romney not only as an influential figure in SC, but also to blunt concerns among social conservatives about Romney. DeMint, as former Phoenix writer Dan Kennedy has described, is among the hardcore on those issues.
