Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney has received endorsements from major Republican figures in two early primary states. Former Sens. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., and Mel Martinez, R-Fla., have decided to back the former Massachusetts governor, The Hill reports.

Romney's campaign announced the two endorsements today.

Gregg was the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee until he retired last year. He also supported Romney in 2008. Martinez, former chairman of the Republican Party, endorsed Arizona Sen. John McCain in 2008.

New Hampshire is scheduled to be the nation’s second caucus/primary, and Florida, No. 5. Romney is a heavy favorite in New Hampshire, while Florida is highly competitive.
