Rick Perry picks up the endorsement of Kansas governor Sam Brownback, the Daily Caller reports: 

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback will endorse Rick Perry on Thursday, according to Perry aides. He will then attend the GOP debate in Florida, as Perry’s guest.

Brownback, who also ran for president in 2008 and served in the U.S. senate, now becomes the third governor to endorse Perry — joining Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval.

And Mitt Romney gets the nod from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chair Darrell Issa. Here's the congressman's statement, from a Romney campaign press release: 

As a former businessman, I know that Mitt Romney is the right candidate to get both California and the country’s economy on the right track again. The country would be well served to have someone who knows how the economy works and has worked in the private sector. President Obama never worked in the real economy – we can’t afford to have another president who has spent his career outside the real economy.
