Cantor: GOP beginning to 'coalesce' for Romney

Associated Press + More

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says Republicans are coalescing around Mitt Romney's candidacy and looking for ways to work together to defeat President Barack Obama.

Cantor, who endorsed Romney over the weekend, said Monday that despite the prolonged GOP presidential primary, Republicans are beginning to set aside their differences and focus on winning back the White House.

Cantor, in a CNN interview, said. "What we're doing is we're coalescing around Mitt Romney's plan to actually address the economic challenges we have."

Cantor says Republicans are trying to find ways to work together and bring people together.

Romney, Cantor says, "is the only person in the race who has ever created a job." He predicts Romney will do well in Tuesday's 10-state Super Tuesday contests.
