Romney picks up RI endorsements ahead of primary
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Mitt Romney is announcing new endorsements in Rhode Island ahead of the state's presidential primary.
The Republican presidential candidate announced on Wednesday that he's won the support of Rhode Island House Minority Leader Brian Newberry, Cranston Mayor Allan Fung and more than a dozen other prominent GOP figures.
Romney will appear on Tuesday's GOP primary ballot along with Newt Gingrich, Buddy Roemer, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum. Santorum left the race last week, after the ballots were already prepared.
Connecticut, Delaware, New York and Pennsylvania will also hold primaries on Tuesday.
