Santorum makes no prediction ahead of Tuesday primaries

(CNN) – As voters in Wisconsin, Maryland, and the District of Columbia prepare to cast ballots on Tuesday, Rick Santorum would not say in an interview on CNN's "John King, USA," if this is his last stand.

"My epitaph has been written many, many times throughout the course of this campaign," he said. "So I'm just going to take it a day at a time and we're going to keep working very, very hard and go out and articulate the principles that I think will win this election in the fall."

That remark - uttered by longtime Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom on CNN Wednesday morning - was pounced on by the Obama campaign and Romney's GOP rivals, who called it another sign of Romney's willingness to change his positions for political gain.

Same-sex marriage bill stalls in Maryland legislature

Washington (CNN) – The Maryland House of Delegates decided Friday not to vote on a bill that would legalize same-sex marriage, a sign that the measure did not have majority support within the overwhelmingly Democratic legislative body.

After more than two hours of emotional debate, the House agreed to send the bill back to the Judiciary Committee, where it would receive a new round of hearings and be open to the amendment process, a move that could effectively end any prospect of passage this year. The Maryland General Assembly is set to adjourn on April 11.
