Larson, Blumenthal, hang up on CT reporters as Santorum’s withdrawal breaks

The point was to soften up Mitt Romney the day before his first visit to Connecticut, but as Rick Santorum’s campaign went into suspension Tuesday, state political reporters were left on hold and hold and hold…

How much Betthoven could be listened to? Apparently 23 minutes worth before Rep. John Larson and his partner U.S. Sen. Dick Blumenthal decided to abruptly cancel a conference call news conference and hang up without so much as a how-do-you-do.

So Mitt Romney rides into Hartford tomorrow afternoon as the more than the front-running GOP presidential candidate. He’s the presumptive nominee. Don’t worry, though, Santorum remains on the April 24 primary ballot.
