Romney Wants Bachmann’s Endorsement

Political sites are buzzing this morning over word that Mitt Romney is en route to Minnesota to ask Michele Bachmann for her endorsement. And maybe something more? The Boston Globe reports:

Mitt Romney is carrying a full head of steam after winning the Florida primary, but the Republican presidential contender isn’t headed first today for Nevada or Maine, the next two states to vote. Instead, he is jetting off this morning to Minnesota for what is billed as a “grassroots rally.” Why? Michele Bachmann, it seems. Aides to Romney and the Minnesota congresswoman have been in conversation in recent days about securing the candidate’s endorsement by the Tea Party favorite and forceful public speaker, The Boston Globe has learned.

A press conference is planned for this afternoon.
