Jones is one of two members of Congress who have backed Paul's bid. The other is Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Paul's son.

I knew Walter Jones was a fan, but I completely missed that endorsement (if it was ever formally announced).

NICE! Totally unsurprised given his growth in the last decade. Congressman Jones representing, and doing North Carolina proud!

Fantastic find! I sure hope this gains traction and others join in. Justin Amash and others who got RP's endorsement and his fan's votes and contributions; need to step up to the plate.

Haha! I'm sure she'll get right on it. Didn't she a pledge a million dollars, anyway?

Ron says Walter Jones is probably his best friend on the Hill. I don't think there has been a formal endorsement just because endorsements are usually rolled out when the campaign strategically wants media, but I'd have been astonished if he endorsed anyone else.

I hope when the time is right, the campaign roles out a press release annoucing the endorsement.

Thank you, Congressman Jones.

Another person's endorsement I'd reeeeaaalllllllly like to have is Senator DeMint's. South Carolina comes early, very early.

Timothy Johnson, from Illinois, is another likely endorsement.

Not a perfect guy......but nobody is. Its all about building coalitions, not being purists. This is a good direction for the campaign.

Hopefully this will be the first of many. Next up should be Amash (hopefully).

"There are show horses, and work horses," Jones said. "Paul is a work horse."
