[The sell-out continues]
(CBS News) Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, who voted for Newt Gingrich earlier this month, said on "CBS This Morning" Thursday that Republicans may coalesce around front-runner Mitt Romney "soon."
"Pretty soon the Republican voters are going to have to coalesce behind somebody. Haven't done that. But maybe we are on the verge of that," Barbour told Erica Hill and Charlie Rose.
Asked if he was prepared to follow former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's lead and publicly back Romney, Barbour said he might do so "once this is over," but it is not yet over. Bush endorsed Romney Wednesday.
