Two Days Late, Ryan Endorses Romney

Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Mitt Romney's 2012 running mate, endorsed him on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday — two days after Romney announced he will not run for president in 2016. "I was going to support Mitt in whatever it is he decided to do," Ryan said. "I think Mitt Romney would have been a fantastic president."

A large winter storm is sweeping across a large swath of the northern U.S. on Sunday, threatening to snarl travel on Super Bowl Sunday with snow and freezing rain from the Midwest to the Northeast, NBC News reported. Winter storm warnings were issued from parts of Iowa and Missouri to New England, as up to a foot of snow could fall in several northern cities.

It comes a week after ISIS beheaded another Japanese hostage and demanded the release of a would-be suicide bomber. A video released Saturday claimed that Goto was executed after a Thursday deadline for Jordan to release prisoner Sajida al-Rishawi was not met. NBC News has not yet verified the video, but it appears consistent with other ISIS hostage videos, according to analysts SITE Intelligence. ISIS had threatened to execute Goto and 1st Lt. Mu'ath al-Kasaesbeh if al-Rishawi was not freed within 24 hours. Read »
