Cox finally adds support to Romney

   If there was any doubt the Republican presidential primary campaign is over in New York before it started, that ended Wednesday when state GOP Chairman Edward F. Cox endorsed Mitt Romney.

   "This has been a hard-fought primary campaign, but now is the time for our party to unite behind the candidate best prepared to lead us to victory in November and that is why I am endorsing Mitt Romney for president," he said.

   Cox couldn't quite get himself to say overwhelmingly Democratic New York will vote for the former Massachusetts governor this fall. But the ever-optimistic chairman did say the state will play the most important role of any non-swing state in November.

   "While not a swing state, New York, as the country's center for finance, for media and for many ethnic and other networks, will have a major role in electing Mitt," he said.
