While the race for the Republican nomination for president is far from settled, Eastern Washington's U.S. House Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has already chosen her candidate: Mitt Romney.

The presidential campaign for the former Massachussets governor announced McMorris Rodgers's endorsement in a press release on Wednesday.

"Mitt Romney actually knows how the economy works — he spent 25 years in the private sector — and knows how jobs are created," McMorris Rodgers, also a Republican, says in the press release.

McMorris Rodgers, who is the fifth-highest-ranking Republican in the House, will also chair Romney's Washington election committee, according to the press release.

Romney currently trails former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich in a Gallup poll of Republican contenders.
