Social conservative activists who met in Texas earlier this weekend announced Saturday that they had voted to throw their support behind Santorum.

"There was an agreement, the one consensus was that virtually no one was for Mitt Romney," said the former House speaker.

"In fact there was a very strong Santorum group and there was a very strong Gingrich group at that particular meeting and the Gingrich folks are still very much for me," he added.
