But Can They Agree on a China Pattern?

Rep. Connie Mack IV (R-Fla.) announced Wednesday that he is endorsing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) for president.

[IMGCAP(1)]Mack becomes the third Member from the Sunshine State to endorse Romney, joining Reps. Ginny Brown-Waite and Tom Feeney in the former governor’s camp. He predicted that Romney will be “a catalyst for conservative change in Washington.”

“Governor Romney is a proven problem solver with an unparalleled record of success in both the public and private sectors,” Mack said in a statement.

Mack’s decision to back Romney puts him at odds with his bride-to-be, Rep. Mary Bono (R-Calif.), who already has endorsed former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) in the White House race. But by splitting their endorsements, they double the possibility that someone in their household will have sided with the eventual GOP nominee.
