Somewhat overshadowed by the Democrat’s scrum in South Carolina today, GOP front runner wanna-be John McCain has picked up a couple of fairly significant endorsements in the last couple of days.

And while many debate the significance of endorsements, it is hard to argue that the support of Senator Mel Martinez and Governor Charlie Crist won’t help in his battle with Mitt Romney in the critical contest on Tuesday in Florida.

It remains unclear if these key endorsements will stave the surge of Mitt Romney in recent days, specifically after Mitt’s very strong performance in the debate on Thursday.
