Santorum Stops Short Of Officially Endorsing Romney

Santorum Stops Short Of Officially Endorsing Romney

Rick Santorum said Tuesday he will support whoever wins the Republican primary, but stopped short of officially endorsing presumptive nominee Mitt Romney.

In his first joint interview with wife Karen since dropping out of the race on April 10, Santorum avoided using the word "endorsement," but told CNN's Piers Morgan Romney would be "the person that's going against Barack Obama."

After Morgan pressed Santorum on whether he would endorse Romney, Santorum said, "All I said was the obvious, which is Mitt Romney's going to be the nominee and I am going to support the nominee, whoever that nominee is, period."

"Well that's Mitt Romney," Morgan replied, to which Santorum said, "Well that's what it looks like, yeah."

Santorum later added Romney "is going to be the Republican nominee. I'm going to be for the Republican nominee. We're going to do what we can to beat Barack Obama."

CNN also reported two senior Santorum advisors confirmed a meeting on May 4 with Romney. A possible endorsement could follow, they said.
