NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Officials have told The Associated Press that Mitt Romney will endorse former rival John McCain.
He will endorse the Republican front-runner on Thursday. The officials have spoke on condition of anonymity. Romney will release his 288 delegates and urge them to back McCain.
The former Massachuttsetts governor dropped out of the race last week. It became apparent that toppling McCain would be near impossible.
