Jeb Bush Likely To Endorse Mitt Romney

If former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney can win the South Carolina primary, and receive former Florida Governor Jeb Bush's endorsement prior to the Sunshine State's primary, Romney will more than likely be a lock to win Florida as well. If these two items occur and Mitt Romney wins Florida, he will become the "presumptive nominee" for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. Zeke Miller at BuzzFeed has more on Bush's potential endorsement of Romney: 

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush plans to endorse former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney before the Jan. 31 Florida primary, a Florida GOP source close to Bush told BuzzFeed Thursday.
