Perot Endorses Romney for President

Ross Perot endorses Mitt Romney in a Des Moines Register op-ed:

"These are leadership qualities that are sorely needed in Washington today. President Obama promised a great deal. He has had his chance. The results are visible for all to see. It is time for a new beginning. It is time for Mitt Romney."

First Read: "Yes, this is one rich man endorsing another rich man. And Perot's politics have always been Republican leaning. But the issue Perot is best known for -- the deficit -- is something that potentially plays well in Iowa, with older voters who remember who Perot is. And so the endorsement carries symbolic importance."

It's worth noting that just two weeks ago Perot said he would not make an endorsement.
