Romney Endorsements Roll In After Santorum Concession

Good news for de facto Republican nominee Mitt Romney: several more prominent conservative politicians threw their support behind him today...but they waited until after Rick Santorum's concession speech.

Now that's what I call, er...conviction?

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) and Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal (R) are among the Republicans who threw their support to Mitt Romney immediately after Rick Santorum announced he was ending his campaign.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Florida governor Rick Scott (R) also endorsed Romney quickly after Santorum dropped out of the race.

Iowa governor Terry Branstad (R) endorsed Romney just moments before Santorum’s announcement.

Toomey and Jindal also sounded the trumpets of party unity, urging conservaties to back the Republican in the race for the sake of defeating President Obama.

"It’s time for all Republicans to focus their energies on the fall campaign which will give Americans a fundamental choice between [President] Obama’s lurch toward European style big government and the Republican alternative of a thriving private sector with a smaller government," said Jindal.

It's to be expected that various lawmakers and leaders around the country would throw in their lot with the man who will challenge Obama. But they certainly did play it safe, waiting until Romney's biggest challenger withdrew.
