Campfield, Dunn Disappointed with Santorum Suspending Campaign

State Rep. Bill Dunn, a Knoxville Republican who was instrumental in organizing Santorum’s successful campaign in Tennessee, said he was disappointed that the Pennsylvania senator had decided to suspend his campaign. (Story on Santorum’s announcement HERE.)
“I guess the other states dropped the ball,” Dunn said.
“I know he worked hard and made a lot of sacrifices to give people a choice,” said Dunn, adding he stands ready now to support the party nominee, presumably Romney.
“I am ready to beat Barack Obama. He is so bad and dangerous that whoever comes out of the primary, I’ll be supporting him,” Dunn said.
State Sen. Stacey Campfield, who abandoned his role as co-chairman of Newt Gingrich’s campaign to endorse Santorum, voiced similar sentiments.
“I’ll support Mitt Romney if he is going to be the nominee,” said Campfield. “I was hoping for somebody more conservative. But he (Romney) is better than what we have in there now, a raging liberal….a train wreck.”
