(Newser) – With states leapfrogging each other to move elections ever closer, we've just about arrived at crunch time for endorsement season. Chris Christie may be done, but Politico lists a dozen yet to come that could prove pivotal for Republicans. Along with some of the usual suspects (Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Jeb Bush), the list includes:

  • Sen. Kelly Ayotte: The New Hampshire Republican could deliver conservatives in her important home state.

  • Sen. Marco Rubio: The Florida Republican is a Tea Party darling and a potential VP candidate to boot.
  • Rep. Steve King: The conservative Iowa congressman "has real juice in western Iowa with the base," says Politico. That could be huge in the caucus system.
