Santorum Declines Romney Endorsement

“I haven’t supported any candidate at this point, so that’s really up to you,” Santorum, as quoted by the Los Angeles Times, said during a conference call with thousands of supporters.

Former GOP Presidential candidate Rick Santorum told supporters Monday evening that they should vote for whatever candidate they prefer, declining to follow in the footsteps of the Republican establishment by backing Mitt Romney, the party’s de-facto nominee.

“I haven’t supported any candidate at this point, so that’s really up to you,” Santorum, as quoted by the Los Angeles Times, said during a conference call with thousands of supporters.

According to CBS, Santorum has been in touch with former Speaker Newt Gingrich after suspending his campaign, but not Romney. Gingrich has previously urged Santorum’s supporters to come back his flailing candidacy.

Santorum left the race last Monday amid concerns that he would not be able to win in Pennsylvania, a state he represented as a Congressman and Senator.
