Santorum Endorses Romney as Republican Nominee

Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, almost a month after he dropped out of the presidential race, endorsed Mitt Romney to be the Republican nominee against President Barack Obama.

“We both agree that President Obama must be defeated,” Santorum, 53, said in an e-mailed statement last night. “It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Governor Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement and support to win this the most critical election of our lifetime.”
