Romney: Santorum is ‘at the desperate end of his campaign’

Mitt Romney said Tuesday that rival Rick Santorum was “at the desperate end of his campaign” and resorting to “baseless” campaign ads because of Romney’s lead in the delegate count.

During an interview Tuesday with CNN, Romney was asked to respond to a new commercial, paid for by a super-PAC supporting Santorum, that suggested Romney left Massachusetts after his time as governor.

“I’m not going to get into discussing various ads. But obviously, we — we left Massachusetts with over a $2 billion rainy day fund and a balanced budget. So I’m afraid his conclusions are exactly wrong,” Romney said. “But, you know, Sen. Santorum is at the desperate end of his campaign and is trying, in some way, to boost his prospects and — and, frankly, misrepresenting the truth is not — not a good way of doing that.”
