WASHINGTON (AP) — The No. 2 House Republican says Mitt Romney, despite some setbacks, will emerge from the GOP presidential nominating fight as the party’s standard-bearer against President Barack Obama.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor tells CBS “This Morning” that Romney’s ascension to the top is inevitable, saying his two closest rivals, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, “have not demonstrated an ability to do what needs to be done” to lock down the nod.

Cantor says Romney will ultimately be chosen as the party’s nominee “because he’s the only candidate in this race who’s got a plan to turn this economy around.”

The Virginia Republican, who has endorsed Romney, calls the former Massachusetts governor the man who has “outperformed all the other candidates.” He says, “You’re seeing an increasing flow toward Mitt Romney.”
