Campaign 2012

Santorum Camp: We’ll Do Whatever It Takes to Beat Obama

One day after his campaign suspended its efforts, a spokeswoman for Rick Santorum said that he would do whatever is necessary to help Mitt Romney beat President Obama in November but stopped short of offering an endorsement.

Appearing on CNN’s Starting Point, campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart was asked whether Santorum would be willing to stand up and endorse Romney now. “What he assured Governor Romney yesterday is, they’ll have conversations in the next few days and weeks to come,” she said, “and he has vowed to do whatever it is that Governor Romney needs to help him to defeat Barack Obama in November.” She added that Santorum was willing to do “whatever he needs him to do, whether it’s speaking, acting as surrogate work.”

 

Stewart brushed aside questions about the bruising nature of the campaign and critical statements made by Santorum about Romney in past weeks.

“As you know, that’s in the heat of the primary and the job of the candidates is to show the contrasts,” she said. When pressed on specific harsh statements Santorum made about Romney, including comparing him to Obama, Stewart simply said, “The key is looking forward and rallying behind Mitt Romney.”

“The people have spoken and they believe he’s the best person,” she said.
