On Fox News last night, Rand Paul endorsed Mitt Romney, noting that "the nominating process is over" and that they agreed on a number of issues.
One of the oddest moments was when Paul ticked off that list of similarities that began with this:
"I think it's interesting that Governor Romney and I actually have quite a few similarities.
You know, Governor Romney's dad ran for president; was unsuccessful. Governor Romney then went on to support the nominee the same way his dad did."
As for the substance, Paul noted that he and Romney shared similar concerns about the transparency of the Fed, a distaste for SOPA, and the REINS Act.
Earlier this year, the Washington Post had a good look about the Romney and Ron Paul friendship, which seems to stem from genuine friendliness but also a good dose of Rand's ambition.
If you remember, Ron formally announced that would stop campaigning on May 14.
