Romney has an impressive list of Arizona Republican establishment endorsements, including U.S. Sen. John McCain, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee. He also has put together a grass-roots team  in the state.

"I'll do everything I can for him in Arizona," McCain told The Arizona Republic. "I'll do everything I can do for him everywhere."
