WASHINGTON (AP) Rick Santorum is endorsing his one-time bitter rival Mitt Romney in a late-night e-mail to his supporters.
Santorum on Monday urged his supporters to join him in working with the effective Republican nominee to deny President Barack Obama a second term.

Rick has always been too nice for his own good, another pol down the drain.
He didn’t say he released his delegates though did he?
I just posted this over on the Freep a Thon wondering why none of the Santorum supporters got Ricks message or put it up....he ‘announced his support for Romney via E-mail to his supporters.
Must be not many here got the message it would seem.
Another socialist with an R behind his name!
“..I guess Romney had to get with his people and see if theyd agree to Ricks price. Looks like they did. ..”
If Mitt did agree with Rick’s terms, it will be a much better country.
IMHO we were so Heartless that now we are gonna get “feelings” jammed up our hinders for the next 4.5 years
Oh just knock it off bill...you know comments like that ,calling people haters, is exactly why it’s impossible to have reasonable dialogue. Sheesh...some of you guys just don’t know when to quit.
Obama MUST BE DEFEATED, or we wont recognize the U.S.A. in 4 years.
Its heart breaking that Romney is the nominee, but there are future elections, and we need to slow down the bleeding until then.
Akin to crony politics.
It wasn’t about Ricks terms....it was about what Romney’s going to give for Ricks delegates...and why they met her in Pittsburgh. Interesting though he didn’t say he released his delegates..just gave his endorsements. As I’ve been saying Ricky’s the back seat driver in this and has been since he dropped out.
We shall see if Rick gives Romney the delegates with the endorsement....those are the bottom line.
I am a big Rick supporter and this disappoints me quite a bit. I mean, Senator, if you are just going to endorse him in an email, c’mon ... why do it at all? Why does everyone cave?
Quite frankly, our only hope for the Conservative movement is if Romney loses. If he is voted into our camp ... it is over.
Go Obama! /s
Yay Ricky! Proved I was right all along...
Yep....Ricks been holding out for just the right price. Am thinking Romney’s pretty much going to give him what he wants as to position, and probably money to pay his debt off. Rick had nothing to loose in this race....and much to gain in his political career. So he’ll be set. We knew he’d stop at Pa. ...there wasn’t a welcome mat for him here and he knew it and why.
I don’t know if he has specifically directed his delegates to vote for Willard (and they’re under no obligation to do so and absolutely should not). I supported Santorum as a last-ditch effort, but I don’t follow his instructions to support someone antithetical to the Conservative cause and destructive to the GOP. Stopping Willard at the GOP convention is of paramount importance.
Hard to say just yet who the running mate will be. Could be anyone from Bachmann to Pawlenty. In the end, I don't think it's going to matter anyway.
It’s Probably all about campaign debts.
Yep...like..”Toto we’re not in Kansas anymore”.
