Rick Santorum Endorses Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney will likely need Rick Santorum's assistance on the campaign trail as a conduit for social conservatives. If Romney is to defeat Obama in November, all Republicans will have to be moving in lockstep. ABC News has more on Santorum's endorsement:

Rick Santorum has officially endorsed Mitt Romney, and notified his supporters in an email sent Monday night.

In the lengthy email, Santorum encouraged Romney to “add more conservative leaders as an integral part of his team.”

“And you can be sure that I will work with the governor to help him in this task to ensure he has a strong team that will support him in his conservative policy initiatives,” Santorum said.

Santorum told his supporters he intends to “keep lines of communication open.”

“Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated,” the letter read. “The task will not be easy. 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.”
