Top Republican: End the Primary

It looks like the party is turning on Rick Santorum. Top Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell called for an end to the dragged-out GOP primary, saying it’s time to turn the attention to the general campaign against President Obama. “It’s absolutely apparent that it’s in the best interests of our party at this particular point to get behind the person who is obviously going to be our nominee,” McConnell said on CNN’s State of the Union. He went on to call Mitt Romney an “excellent nominee.” Santorum has vowed to stay in the race.
