Either Billy Long is getting up extremely early or staying up far past his bedtime, but whichever it is, he's working hard to ensure former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney receives the GOP presidential nomination.
Republican Congressman Tim Soott of South Carolina says he is being texted by supporters of all of the remaining candidates, but one came far earlier than the others, according to CNN Political Ticker:
As a conservative freshman congressman from the Charleston area, Scott’s endorsement has been highly coveted. And in recent days the efforts have increased, Scott said, “there’s a lot of heat, a lot of pressure to make a decision and make it public and make it soon.”
“I’ve learned that almost all the candidates can text, which has been good – social media’s a very important part of the equation in the future,” Scott said, describing the efforts the GOP field has gone through in seeking his support. “And certainly their supporters are texting. I got one at 4:37 a.m. One of the congressman who’s decided to join the Romney camp wanted to encourage me – Billy Long texted me at 4:37 a.m.”
