Let me ask you this morning Mitt Romney announcing that -- -- he has the endorsement of former attorney general John Ashcroft we were talking about.
Tracking Muslim organizations Eric Holder is going to be speaking today to.
About what we can do with Americans overseas as we did with -- -- me.
What what what capability -- -- law enforcement have do you think an endorsement from a former attorney general significant.
Well absolutely these are.
Leaders of the party.
I don't think you necessarily.
Improves his conservative credentials -- at all but.
This is the leader of the party we're starting to see a lot of these leaders of start to endorse him start to coalesce around their guy.
It took them a long time to get.
For him to be their guy but they're starting to coalesce around him it's a very important endorsement and I think.
And in the can't be true henceforth.
He can really start to talk about national international issues.
With a little more of Robert -- and that's what I think this endorsement does.
You Rick Santorum is not going anywhere.
I mean I don't in the -- he's still doing very very well especially Ohio which seems to be so important and beyond the upcoming -- team.
I ask -- one tomorrow although you know week or so ago he was leading by double digits and Romney has not only close that gap that opened the so Muster some bulls actually opened up -- -- against.
Santorum says the movement seems to be away from Santorum.
The right if that is the wrong time for his candidacy going into the ten state.
Wet which heavily favors obviously a campaign -- With plenty of cash and -- organizational skills so it's he he still hang on a certain states Ohio Oklahoma Tennessee.
And may -- eke out wins and in multiple of them tomorrow but.
But that the momentum seems to be turning against some of the long time what if he does what -- Santorum does eke out a few wins.
Then he has some with some justification to stay in -- a little longer I don't think without winning something like maybe four -- more states including Ohio.
He really doesn't have a leg to stand on saying I really am still -- credible candidate but he can perhaps convince enough.
Contributors enough staffers.
Enough media outlets to to maintain that the -- covers an infrastructure allows that to continue on it and and prolong.
What I think is still not -- inevitable outcome -- if he gets one or two doesn't win Ohio.
Even then I think the Santorum campaign if not the candidate himself certainly his backers and the would be endorsement from the start pointed toward the exit.
While the exits.
Excerpts we have it's nobody's looking at the -- -- that -- at least they'll admit and Newt Gingrich has pulled it off before where he's come from behind and become a winner.
What states other than Ohio would be important for new to win.
-- Georgia clearly.
That was the I think that would be clearly.
Didn't I -- his home if not impossible that he won't but you know he obviously needs to win that Tennessee I think it's also.
In the mix tomorrow so but -- other states clearly we that the bulk of conservative.
Voters where he clearly has been paying a lot of attention to.
Santorum has been doing that also.
So it really is about the race between those two in those.
In those conservative states we went and what issue is most important to this southern vote the same as the rest of the country I think I think so but -- If you go in this in these last few weeks where we've had this these this longer conversation about contraception.
About class wars about.
The influence of the the federal government into religious matters.
I definitely think all of that goal that's still plays but again -- in interest sister to your point.
I don't know if that's enough to get them to five speed six beats tomorrow if it Santorum wins may be forced the -- still -- Gingrich I think.
If he stays in past tomorrow and doesn't win more than two speeds he's like Ron Paul -- you know he's just -- you know for the -- and part of a movement.
I didn't know that they're not not when a -- -- -- obviously.
