Santorum: "I will do everything I can"

Rick Santorum closed his speech to the NRA today with a very important endorsement of GOP efforts, and quite notably, dismissed the notion of a strict purity test.

"I ask all of you to do everything you can.

I know there'll always be complaints about 'well, I don't like this candidate or that candidate, or they're not as good on these issues or not'.

We've got to win in this general election.... we have to be all in, and I pledge to you -- even though I'm no longer in this race -- that I will be all in between now and November. I will do everything I can to make sure we elect Republicans and conservatives up and down the ticket."

Santorum hasn't endorsed Romney yet, but this was quite an enthusiastic endorsement of the Republican cause this fall and, presumably, the standard bearer of that cause.
