Virginia week for Mitt Romney (when is Florida week?)

Jonathan Martin has the goods on what's turning into Virginia Week for Mitt Romney.

With Active Mitt loose in the country, the question is: when does Florida Week come, and when does he endorse Crist or Rubio?

He might wait until it's more obvious how things are going to shake out. But that runs the risk of playing into his stereotype: that he makes decisions on political convenience, and isn't willing to run against a prevailing wind.

If he endorses Crist, he'll curry favor with the establishment -- not a bad place for a candidate who's building a case around being the establishment.

But if he endorses Rubio, grassroots activists might be able to forget he's Mormon.
