Rick Santorum still leads Mitt Romney -- nationwide polls and that has some questioning whether.
Any of the candidates will win enough delegates to clinch the GOP nomination.

Once somebody starts to win they keep on when it.
But there are plenty of other some of the top Republican leaders on Capitol Hill who believe there's a very strong possibility that the GOP -- into the convention in August with -- -- settled nominee until -- -- a lot of activity on that front not sure exactly how that's gonna translate.

Congressman that -- -- he -- in the nomination race himself for awhile.
He is now publicly speaking out saying it would be an insult to those who actually state in the race until the end and would -- someone who quote lacked the courage to run.
And essentially -- a silent until the convention he -- would also send the wrong message to American voters who went out voted in a primary.
But to say we don't trust your judgment how -- you then turn around and asked the same voters to trust you and the general election.
In all interest in points Shannon Bream reporting live for us thank you.
