Romney Wins the Wayne Newton Primary

by Robert Costa

The Vegas crooner, who attended last night’s debate, endorses Romney:

Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, told NBC he came in hoping to support Rick Perry, but the impeccably tanned crooner said he thought the Texas governor’s attacks on Mitt Romney were “mean-spirited” — and that Romney was a “gentleman.”

And now he’ll back Romney.

PJTV’s Alexis Garcia has video from the Venetian. Newton says the GOP field would make a “great showroom act for Las Vegas, if we could get them all together.”
