Senator McCain Moving Towards Endorsing Mitt Romney

December 7, 2011

The establishment wing of the Republican Party will rally around Mitt Romney now more than ever.

Arizona Sen. John McCain, the GOP presidential nominee in 2008, is moving toward endorsing a candidate for 2012.

Republican sources familiar with his thinking say he will probably endorse his onetime political enemy, Mitt Romney.

There is virtually no chance, sources say, that he will pick former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), who has surged into the lead in polls, stoking consternation among his ex-colleagues on Capitol Hill.

His statements come as angst among Republicans in Washington is intensifying. Publicly and privately, GOP kingmakers have said they are dreading the possibility that Gingrich will capture the Republican nomination.

    Don’t you think it sad that the GOP of my childhood, and that of my father’s generation is now tarred and feathered and no longer respectable by the new read-meat crowd. Is there any joy in being so conservative that even Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan most likely would not be able to get your party’s nomination if there were to run in 2012? Do you honestly think that type of GOP is sustainable, or worthy of support?
