Romney Backer Endorses Santorum

Team Romney just lost a significant supporter to its biggest opponent. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Friday that he's leaving the Romney camp for greener pastures, arguing that Rick Santorum has a better chance at winning. Mitt's campaign insists the switch is insignificant. "Nothing has changed," said Romney adviser and former New Hampshire governor John Sununu. "Attorneys general don't have that much of an organization." Sununu suggests DeWine's move stemmed from a pro-Romney super PAC ad that criticized Santorum for promoting voting rights for felons--something DeWine supports.
