A week ahead of his state’s Republican presidential primary, former Alabama Gov. Bob Riley (R) has endorsed Mitt Romney. 

Riley pledged his support to Romney while acknowledging that the former Massachusetts governor, who has struggled to build a coalition of support in southern states, faces an uphill battle in Alabama. 

“I think Romney is an underdog in the state of Alabama but that doesn’t take away any of my support for him,” Riley said in an interview Wednesday.

Riley served as governor from 2003 until 2011. The Alabama primary is scheduled for March 13.
