Branstad endorses Romney (audio)

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad held a statehouse news conference early this afternoon to announce he is endorsing Mitt Romney’s bid for the GOP’s 2012 presidential nomination.

AUDIO of the 13-minute news conference.

Branstad said it’s time for the GOP to “coalesce” around Romney. Branstad also suggested the three other candidates who remain in the race should aim their slings and arrows at President Obama for the remainder of the primary season, as Branstad said Americans have “primary fatigue” and that will make it difficult for Republicans to win over independent voters as well as disillusioned Democrats.
