O’Donnell Endorses Romney

Former Delaware GOP senate candidate Christine O’Donnell announced tonight that she was endorsing Mitt Romney.

The Romney campaign e-mailed an announcement of the endorsement.  “Christine has been a leader in the conservative movement for many years. Christine recognizes that excessive government threatens us now and threatens future generations, and I am pleased to have her on my team,” Romney said in a statement.

So, who would have guessed last cycle that Lisa Murkowski and O’Donnell would wind up endorsing the same presidential candidate?
