Source: Trump to Endorse Romney
Celebrity business magnate Donald Trump will endorse Mitt Romney for president Thursday, sources with knowledge of the endorsement told CNN.
News of Trump’s endorsement of the Republican front-runner came as the GOP candidates stumped for votes in Nevada — which holds its caucuses Saturday — and Romney continued to wrestle with fallout from a CNN interview in which the former Massachusetts governor said he wasn’t “concerned about the very poor.”

ABC News’ Michael Falcone reports:
Donald Trump will endorse Mitt Romney in Las Vegas on Thursday, sources familiar with the decision tell ABC News.
A political aide in Trump’s office spoke directly with Mitt Romney by phone last night before Trump’s private plane took off from New York City to Las Vegas, according to a source familiar with the discussion.
The call was to inform Romney of Thursday endorsement, which will take place at a 12:30 p.m. event at the Trump International Hotel on the Las Vegas strip.
