Last night on the Sean Hannity Show, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) endorsed Mitt Romney for President.

But he expects there will be more than 500 delegates there supporting his position, which is far more than anyone anticipated.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has snatched up all the reservations at several venues near the site of its national convention in Tampa, Florida in August, perhaps to prevent supporters of Ron Paul from holding a planned “Paul Festival” at the Florida Fairgrounds during the entire weekend before the Convention.
