Santorum: I sent late-night email so it'd make morning news

Rick Santorum last night, after Jay Leno asked why Rick sent his email endorsing Mitt Romney at 11 PM.

Santorum:

"We decided to put it out late at night, so it would be sort of the first thing people would see in the morning."

Leno then noted that it was "kind of buried" in the 13th paragraph of the email.

Santorum responded, with a smile.

"No, no, no. That's not -- I laid out, sort of, the case and just said 'here's sort of what we went through. Here's the discussion. Here's why I decided to do it.'

This was a letter to my supporters."
