Romney Camp Questions Santorum Competence as Focus Moves

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney gained momentum in the Republican presidential primary, picking up endorsements and rising in polls before state contests March 6 that may determine the party nomination.

Fresh off a victory yesterday in Washington’s caucus, Romney won the backing of U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia and Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn, as surveys showed him building support in Ohio, a political bellwether, and holding an outsized advantage over rivals in Virginia.
