Dan Quayle to Endorse Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney is expected to get a major endorsement tomorrow from former Vice President Dan Quayle.

Quayle hasn’t officially made an announcement yet, but an Associated Press source confirmed that Quayle will officially endorse Romney tomorrow afternoon. Romney is scheduled to speak at an event tomorrow afternoon in Paradise Valley, Airzona, which the AP notes is close to Quayle’s home.

According to the source, Quayle has decided to endorse Romney because he believes that Romney is the most credible candidate running for the GOP nomination.

USA Today reports that although Romney may be the most credible candidate, according to Dan Quayle, he still trails Newt Gingrich in the polls. Romney does, however, have several GOP heavyweights in his corner. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, ex-White House chief of staff John Sununu, and even presidential rival Tim Pawlenty have all said that Romney is the best qualified to turn the economic situation in the United States around.

Dan Quayle served as the Vice President under George H.W. Bush. His son Ben, is currently a U.S. House member in Arizona.

Do you think Dan Quayle’s endorsement will give Mitt Romney a surge in the polls?
