Santorum Chats with Leno

Rick Santorum explained to Jay Leno last night why he took so long to endorse Mitt Romney and why, when he finally gave in, he did so in a late-night email. “I met with Governor Romney last Friday, we’d been trying to work on a meeting,” he said. “I think we just needed some time. It was a rough-and-tumble campaign. I can’t say that it would have been an easy thing to turn around the next day and say, ‘Oh, you know, let’s just go forward.’ It was tough.”
