(ABC NEWS) — Rick Santorum on Wednesday turned his sights westward, picking up the endorsement of a former Colorado congressman and pledging to remain in the race after his distant third-place showing in Florida.

Former Rep. Tom Tancredo endorsed Santorum here calling him “a non-composite” candidate who stands by his convictions rather than changing policy to please voters. ”I believe this is the best man, non-composite candidate, we can put forward for president of the United States,” Tancredo said at Colorado Christian University.
