Rand Paul endorses Mitt Romney

Sen. Rand Paul endorsed Mitt Romney on Sean Hannity's television show Thursday evening.

RAND PAUL: "Well, you know, my first choice had always been my father. I campaigned for him when I was eleven years old. He's still my first pick. But, you know, now that the nominating process is over, tonight, I'm happy to announce that I'm going to be supporting Governor Romney."

Needless to say, this announcement is not going over well with the more rabid/zealous of Ron Paul's supporters. Rand is already facing a backlash from them. Just take a look at their comments on his Facebook page here and here.

The endorsement comes a day after Ron Paul publicly admitted that his campaign will not have enough delegates to win the GOP nomination.
