Santorum: "Nobody puts words into my mouth"
Romney Camp: In 2008, Rick Santorum said that if you wanted a conservative as the nominee of the Republican Party, "you must vote for Mitt Romney." We agree.
Here's something I found at the Boston Globe:
Rick Santorum 2008: Mitt Romney "The Clear Conservative Candidate That Can Go Into The General Election With a United Republican Party"
The Boston Globe 2/1/2008
Mitt Romney picked up two endorsements today, one in a Super Tuesday state, the other in a state where he hopes to be still competing once its primary rolls around
The other endorsement is from former US Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, which doesn't vote until April 22. McCain hopes to have the nomination wrapped up by then.
Santorum, however, appealed to Republicans voting on Super Tuesday.SANTORUM 2/1/2008: "In a few short days, Republicans from across this country will decide more than their party's nominee. They will decide the very future of our party and the conservative coalition that Ronald Reagan built.
Conservatives can no longer afford to stand on the sidelines in this election, and Governor Romney is the candidate who will stand up for the conservative principles that we hold dear," Santorum said in a statement. "Governor Romney has a deep understanding of the important issues confronting our country today, and he is the clear conservative candidate that can go into the general election with a united Republican party."
