Mitt Romney endorses Carlos Curbelo in congressional bid



Mitt Romney, increasingly visible in midterm elections, has endorsed Carlos Curbelo in the Congressional District 26 GOP primary.

"I am proud to stand with Carlos Curbelo, a young conservative leader who will work hard to reform our government, balance the budget, and improve the quality of life for the people of Miami-Dade and Monroe counties," Romney said in a release from Curbelo's campaign.

"As an education reformer, Carlos puts students first. In Washington, he will put his community and our country first. I urge my friends in Florida's 26th Congressional District to vote for Carlos Curbelo."

Curbelo is the favored candidate in the GOP field. He wants to take on Rep. Joe Garcia, D-Miami.
