Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney picked up another conservative endorsement Monday and a new poll showed him pulling ahead in Ohio heading into Super Tuesday, the biggest single day of the Republican presidential campaign.
A day before contests in 10 states will decide how more than 400 delegates get allocated, Romney announced that former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft had joined fellow conservatives Rep. Eric Cantor, the House Majority Leader from Virginia, and Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma in endorsing him.
(CNN) – Presidential contender Newt Gingrich took harsh aim at rival Mitt Romney Monday, suggesting the former Massachusetts governor couldn't rally Republican support because he was being dishonest with voters.
"He can't close the deal. And he can't close the deal in part because people inherently don't trust what he's saying and think that he isn't always very candid with them. And sometimes frankly isn't straight," Gingrich said on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien."

Atlanta (CNN) – Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are grinding it out in Ohio Monday, making final pitches to voters in the Rust Belt State that will be the most watched contest on Super Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich focuses his day on trying to win support in Tennessee, a state that is considered important to his Southern strategy and Ron Paul campaigns in Idaho. Ten states will vote on Tuesday, the biggest election day so far of the 2012 race for the Republican presidential nomination.
Columbus, Ohio (CNN) - Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, a co-chairman of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, called Mitt Romney an "elitist" in an interview with CNN and previewed the Democrats' populist plan of attack against him in Ohio this fall if he becomes the Republican nominee.
"I think he is an elitist, and I think he is out of touch," Strickland said in a phone interview. "If I were the president, I would talk about the Cayman Islands, I would talk about Swiss bank accounts. What could persuade a man running for president to have Swiss bank account?
(CNN) – Rush Limbaugh's apology for labeling a law student a "slut" and "prostitute" failed to stem an exodus of advertisers from his radio show, as another company said Monday it was withdrawing spots from the conservative program.
AOL, along with 11 other companies, announced plans to remove ads from "The Rush Limbaugh Show," which is the most listened to talk radio show in the United States.
(CNN) - With one day to go until Super Tuesday, Mitt Romney's on top in Ohio's Republican presidential primary, according to a new poll.
A Quinnipiac University survey released Monday indicates that 34% of likely Buckeye State GOP primary voters are backing Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who's making his second bid for the nomination, with 31% supporting former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania. Romney's three point advantage is within the poll's sampling error, meaning it's basically all knotted up in Ohio. Fifteen percent are backing former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, with 12% supporting Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
New York (CNNMoney) - They might not be the hottest commodity on Super Tuesday, but Virginia voters are set to become one of the most sought-after prizes of the upcoming general election.
In 2008, Obama carried the state in one of the cycle's biggest surprises. Before that, Virginia had gone to the Republicans in every presidential contest since 1964.
New York (CNNMoney) - Interest rates on U.S. bonds may be ridiculously low, but that doesn't mean the country's future interest payments on the national debt will be.
Uncle Sam will shell out more than $5 trillion in interest payments over the next decade, according to the latest projections from the Congressional Budget Office.
