Senator Rand Paul, son of presidential candidate Ron Paul, officially endorsed Mitt Romney late Thursday night.
Ron Paul ended his official campaign events weeks ago, but has not technically suspended his candidacy and will have delegates at the Republican National Convention in August.
Romney said in a statement that he's grateful to have Rand Paul's endorsement and that he looks forward to working with the Kentucky senator "to get America back on the right track."
Rand Paul told Fox News that his father remains his first pick, but that he will be supporting Romney now that he has the GOP nomination in hand.
