Mark Kirk will formally endorse former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s bid for the GOP presidential nomination on Monday, sources close to the political operation of the first-term Illinois Republican senator said Sunday.

Kirk, the state’s highest-ranking Republican officeholder, will join more than 50 members of Congress who already have endorsed Romney’s candidacy, leading up to the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3.

Yeah, we're already grooming a replacement for Kirk because he's a RINO, so this was never a surprise.

Ah, I thought this was about Captain Kirk. That would have been a cool endorsement. Spock trumps Kirk though. I mean, it's logical.

I imagine many in Illinois will be going for Romney. Illinois is damn near in meltdown thanks to Obama, Blago, and the rest of the Chicago gang.

Wow, Mitt has an impressive list of endorsements.

How many Senators and Congressmen have endorse Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, Paul & Huntsman (i.e. the second tier of candidates)?
