Which Candidates Are Members of Congress Endorsing?


I was going to begin this post, “If you’ve been laying awake nights wondering which presidential candidate has the most endorsements from members of Congress… you really need a hobby.” But perusing the list from The Hill, I admit I’m surprised Mitt Romney is ahead on the Republican side, 26 to 21 for McCain. Not bad for a guy from outside the Beltway with absolutely no Republicans in his state’s congressional delegation.

Among Democrats, Hillary leads Obama, 13 to 8. Chris Dodd has 6, by the way.

Okay, maybe I need a hobby.
