American Conservative Union Chairman Calls For Santorum, Gingrich To Drop Out

Accuses them of “gaming out unrealistic dark horse scenarios.”

Time for Santorum, Gingrich and Romney to get out of the race, says ACU head Al Cardenas in the Daily Caller today:

As of today, it is clear neither Senator Santorum nor Speaker Gingrich nor Congressman Paul can amass the required majority of delegates required to be the Republican nominee. Their only paths to victory feature a contested, anarchic floor fight just weeks before Americans vote on whether or not to give President Obama a second term.

With all due respect to my fellow conservative leaders determined to oppose Governor Romney, that is not a worthy endeavor. For the sake of our Republic, I’m not willing to wait until the Republican National Convention to sort this out. It’s time to unite behind a worthy presidential candidate, build our organization and raise the resources necessary to defeat the liberal electoral machine.

It’s not as though this will prompt the other candidates to get out gracefully — it’s too late for that already — but it’s further indication that pretty much everyone is sick of the primary.
