Sununu to Endorse Romney

Former New Hampshire governor John Sununu will endorse Mitt Romney tomorrow, a decision made after a serious look at Rick Perry. From the New Hampshire Union-Leader:

In exclusive interview, Sununu said he narrowed his choice to Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, but was won over by what he views as Romney’s conservative approach to pressing domestic and national security issues.

He said the final component that persuaded him to back Romney was the former Massachusetts governor’s early October foreign policy speech at The Citadel in South Carolina.

“That showed me that he understands that the principal role of the President of the United States is the security of the country and participating in trying to stabilize the world,” Sununu said.

But while he’s endorsing Romney, Sununu still has kind words for Perry:

Sununu had strong compliments for Perry.

“He’s a good friend,” Sununu said of the Texas governor. “He’s a good Republican and a very good governor and, frankly, would make a good President just as Mitt Romney would make a good President. I don’t have any negative feelings toward him at all.”
