In yet another “OK, let’s get this over” incident, Mitt Romney has racked up a pretty impressive Tea Party-aligned endorsement from Senator Mike Lee (R, Utah).

Now, don’t let the fact that Lee is in Utah — Mormon central, of course — make you think that this endorsement was a fait accompli. Lee is a particularly conservative Senator and has been a favorite of the Tea Party set for quite a while. He’s resisted giving Mitt the nod all the way until now. So, this is actually indicative of the fact that Mitt is finally stating to edge toward the finish line, here.

As the Salt Lake Trib reports, Lee said, “This is a pretty critical year. There are big decisions for the country to make and … I think we would be well-advised as Republicans to start getting behind our eventual nominee.”

Senator Lee also predicted that more conservatives will start coming to Romney’s side from this point forward.

In accepting the endorsement, Mitt said:

“Mike has been fighting on the frontlines to repeal Obamacare and restore fiscal sanity in Washington. I will need the support and hard work of leaders like him if we are going to be successful in shrinking the federal government and restoring America’s promise of freedom and prosperity. I am honored to have Mike’s support and look forward to his advice in the coming months.”

As Hot Air reports, Romney also got the endorsements today of California’s Cary Fiorina, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, and the American Conservative Union’s Al Cardenas.

So, maybe Mitt is finally a winner, here? He’s run so many campaigns to get into office and only won one time so far. Maybe this nomination will be two… but can he beat Obama, that is the real question.

I still don’t see it.
