Santorum Endorses Romney

Rick Santorum urged his supporters to back Mitt Romney's presidential campaign in a late-night email that ignored that Santorum once calling Romney the "worst Republican in the country" during their bitter contest, the AP reports.

"Romney visited Santorum for more than an hour on Friday at the Pittsburgh office of Santorum's longtime strategist. The session covered many of Santorum's concerns about Romney's campaign, especially the sincerity of his vow to repeal Democrats' national health care law that was modeled on one Romney signed into law as Massachusetts governor. Those worries, it seems, were assuaged during their private session that ended without Santorum's public backing."

Howard Kurtz: "But a late-night e-mail endorsement feels like Santorum having it both ways: not really endorsing, but able to tell the Republican Party that he fell into line. It seemed like a hold-your-nose moment."
