Romneymania

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) has endorsed Mitt Romney, in part because of his social conservatism. Former Massachusetts Gov. William F. Weld has endorsed him too, presumably in spite of it.

The second endorsement intrigues me, since Weld was not quite as helpful as he could have been during Romney's 1994 Senate race against Ted Kennedy. I particularly remember one late North End rally, when the Weld-Cellucci ticket was about to cruise to a 71 percent reelection victory, that Romney was pointedly not invited to.
