Fox News and NBC report that Tom Tancredo will drop out of the race tomorrow, and he will likely endorse a candidate.
Most speculation suggests that he will endorse Fred Thompson. However, Mitt Romney is apparently pushing hard for Tancredo’s backing too.

Huckabee, Brownback and Tancredo were the three GOP candidates who raised their hand during Thursday’s debate when asked if they don’t believe in evolution — the development of organisms and species from a primitive state. Huckabee has since clarifed his position stating he has no problem with teaching evolution as a theory in the public schools and he doesn’t expect schools to teach creationism.

“I believe in evolution,” Sen. John McCain said. “But I also believe, when I hike the Grand Canyon and see it at sunset, that the hand of God is there also.”
