Romney names new Md. endorsements

(Dec. 20) GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney released 37 new Maryland endorsements on Tuesday, including Anne Arundel County state Sen. Bryan W. Simonaire and Baltimore County Del. William J. Frank.

Recent polls show Romney running even or slightly behind former House Speaker Newt Gingrich among likely Republican voters nationally. But in terms of organization and endorsements, Romney appears to be leading in traditionally blue Maryland. Romney unveiled his first round of endorsements in the state in September.

Whether the state’s April 3 primary will matter for helping to choose the party’s nominee remains to be seen. The Iowa caucus is set for Jan. 3 and the New Hampshire primary will take place Jan. 10. Super Tuesday, in which 10 states will hold their primaries, falls on March 6.
