Mitt Romney picked up another conservative endorsement Monday and a new poll showed him pulling ahead in Ohio heading into Super Tuesday, the biggest single day of the Republican presidential campaign.

A day before contests in 10 states will decide how more than 400 delegates get allocated, Romney announced that former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft had joined fellow conservatives Rep. Eric Cantor, the House Majority Leader from Virginia, and Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma in endorsing him.

"As a conservative who served as governor of Missouri during the Reagan revolution, I admire Mitt's record of fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, and defense of traditional values in a politically difficult state for a Republican," Ashcroft said of the former Massachusetts governor.
