LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – With Rick Santorum bowing out of the Republican Presidential Primary, the chair of the La Crosse County GOP says it's almost a lock that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will be the party's nominee.
Chairman Julian Bradley also says he expects Mitt Romney to do well in Western Wisconsin when the general election rolls around in November – despite the Santorum's good showing there in the primary April 3.
Santorum won La Crosse, Trempealeau and Monroe Counties earlier this month.
But Bradley says he thinks those voters will now back Romney going forward.
"I don't think it's ever been Romney versus any individual in this primary race," Bradley says. "I think it's been Romney versus non-Romney supporters."
"Santorum was the current non-Romney choice but ultimately, I think the those supporters will fall behind Governor Romney," he adds.
