The Romney campaign confirmed to The Hill earlier Thursday that Trump is expected to endorse the former governor at a rally in Las Vegas. The reality show star was at one time flirting with entering the GOP race on his own, but ultimately decided to return to hosting "The Apprentice."

The Gingrich campaign has not commented on the endorsement. Reports from Nevada Wednesday night had the former Speaker's staff expecting Trump to endorse him, only to have reports that Romney was the choice trickle out Thursday morning.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) called the endorsement "a non-news event" and mocked both for making millions "firing people" during an interview Thursday morning.

"It really wouldn't be surprising if Donald TrumpDonald TrumpStephen Hawking: Trump a 'demagogue' Trump postpones release of veterans funding details Trump Tower to get heightened security during GOP convention MORE supports Mitt Romney, because they both like firing people and they've both made millions doing it," Wasserman Schultz said on MSNBC. "Donald Trump is such a cartoon character, an endorsement no matter who he chooses is like Bugs Bunny making an endorsement."
