How is handing PA’s delegates TO romney through a surrogate fighting romney? That doesn’t make sense.
They'll be required to vote for him, unless he chooses to release them, according to state-party rules.
Even if Santorum endorses Romney, that doesn't mean he can gift all of his delegates to his former rival. Should Santorum elect to release his delegates, they'll become free agents, able to support whichever candidate they choose.
If conservatives could ever agree on ANYTHING, we could pick our own candidate for a bc and start supporting them now. That would give conservatives incentive to vote.
