Mitt Romney will pick up a national-level endorsement in Des Moines this morning when U.S. Sen. John Thune accompanies him on a presidential campaign visit, Romney aides told The Des Moines Register.
Thune, a Republican from South Dakota, made waves in 2004 by defeating incumbent Tom Daschle, who was the Democrats’ leader in the Senate. Earlier this year, his name was floated as a possible presidential contender, but he declined to run.
Romney, a former Massachusetts governor and national front-runner for the Republicans’ presidential nomination, said in a prepared statement that he was grateful for Thune’s support.
“On the issues that I have been fighting for in my campaign – creating a better business environment, lessening the regulatory burden, and ending Washington’s spending addiction – Senator Thune has been a leading voice in the Senate,” Romney said.
