Mitt Romney has a lot to celebrate today. It's his 43rd wedding anniversary, he just won the Illinois Republican presidential primary election, and, now, he's received one of the most coveted Republican endorsements: that of Jeb Bush. The former Florida governor issued a statement Wednesday saying, “I am endorsing Mitt Romney for our party's nomination. We face huge challenges, and we need a leader who understands the economy, recognizes more government regulation is not the answer, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, and works to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed.” Guess this means Jeb won't be making a last-minute run for president after all.
