With the Pennsylvania primary less than a week away- the question remains, will Rick Santorum endorse Mitt Romney.
Senior Strategist to the Santorum campaign John Brabender told Andrea Mitchell today on MSNBC that he just spoke with Romney’s campaign manager and started to float a few dates for a meeting to take place between the former rivals, likely in the next two weeks in Philadelphia.
“It has been made clear to us that the Gov. Romney would like to have at least a discussion of a possible endorsement at that time," Brabender said.
So will the former senator from Pennsylvania endorse before next Tuesday’s primary? Brabender didn’t seem to think so. “I don’t think there will be any endorsement before this meeting takes place," he said, adding, "I think he feels it’s important to have a discussion with Mitt Romney to make sure that the conservative wing of the party is certainly represented in a Romney administration."
Brabender thinks Santorum will be an active participant campaigning this fall, maybe even starting with the Republican Convention this Summer “I would say as Rick Santourm’s advisor that it would be helpful to the process if he did play a major role in the convention.”
