House Whip McCarthy, ACU's Cardenas Endorse Romney

House Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has become the second member of the congressional GOP leadership to endorse Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was the first.
 
“After a long and grueling primary, it is clear that Mitt Romney is the best candidate to face President Obama and fix the mess of his one and only term,” McCarthy said in a statement, Politico reports.
 
“Republicans need to unite and work together if we plan to take back the White House and put in place policies that will get our nation back on a path to prosperity by reducing taxes, shrinking government, and empowering the private sector,” he said. “I am proud to support Mitt Romney and urge my fellow Republicans to do the same.”
 
American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas also endorsed Romney Monday.
 
“As of today, it is clear neither Senator Santorum nor Speaker Gingrich nor Congressman Paul can amass the majority of delegates required to be the Republican nominee,” he wrote on The Daily Caller. “Their only paths to victory feature a contested, anarchic floor fight just weeks before Americans vote on whether or not to give President Obama a second term.
 
 “Gov. Romney is an honorable, worthy, competent, conservative candidate for our next commander-in-chief,” he said. “I’m proud to support his campaign.”
