Mitt Romney receives a significant congressional endorsement from California Rep. Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, who says Romney "is the right candidate to get both California and the country’s economy on the right track again."
Congress has not rushed to endorse so far this year, likely due to the wide field of GOP candidates. Romney’s biggest endorsements so far include Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Scott Brown (R-Mass.), House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) and a widely-touted endorsement last week by former GOP candidate Tim Pawlenty.
"As someone who shares my background in business, Congressman Issa understands that we need to make fundamental changes in Washington,” said Romney. “I am proud to have his support, and look forward to working with him as I campaign in California and work to bring jobs back to the state and strengthen the American economy."
