Trump's Announcement Set For Midafternoon: Gingrich? Romney?

Feb 2, 2012

As the never-shy Donald Trump prepares for what he says will be "a major announcement ... pertaining to the presidential race" at 3:30 p.m. ET in Las Vegas, there's word from CNN that its sources say the Donald will endorse Mitt Romney's bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

That's not where we began the day, when various news outlets were saying they'd been told that Trump would be endorsing Newt Gingrich.

We'll update later with the "news."

Correction at 12:35 p.m. ET. Our apologies for earlier mixing names to come up with "Newt Romney." No excuse for that.
