CNN – Cochran supports Romney despite being tennis buddies with Santorum

Santorum campaign aides said he hasn’t done much lobbying of former colleagues, and said that may be one reason he hasn’t gotten any endorsements yet from his former stomping grounds in the Senate.

Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Mississippi, who endorsed Romney early on, said he never got a call from Santorum, despite the fact the two of them are personal friends, and often played tennis together.

When asked if he thinks Santorum would make a good president, Cochran chuckled nervously and said, “Oh, I don’t know.”

Cochran then said he just thinks Romney is “ideally suited for a very challenging job.”
