Rand Paul Endorses Romney

Just the other night I had a guy on Facebook telling me how some sort of miracle was going to occur at the convention that would give Ron Paul the nomination.  I don't think so:
File this under signs the Ron Paul campaign is really, truly over: Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul threw his support tonight to Mitt Romney.

The endorsement came in an appearance on "Hannity," a little less than 24 hours after the elder Paul acknowledged in an email that his delegate total is "not enough to win the nomination."

Romney embraced the endorsement in a press release, calling Rand Paul a "leading voice in the effort to scale back the size and reach of government and promote liberty."
Will this be enough to swing some of the Paul Bearers over to Romney? Probably not, but it can't hurt. You just know that those who will now be willing to consider Romney will be demanding he name Rand as his VP.
