While You Were Sleeping

Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum endorsed Mitt Romney in an email to supporters sent out at 11 p.m. EST on Monday. The former rivals had a sit-down last week so Santorum could assess Romney’s commitment to issues important to conservatives. His lukewarm endorsement appeared in paragraph 13 of the 16-paragraph-long email.
