Former Republican Party Chairman Haley Barbour says the fight for the GOP presidential nomination could go all the way to the convention.

The former governor of Mississippi says he doesn't think that's likely, but he noted during a CBS "This Morning" interview that none of the candidates has taken control of the race.

"The fact is, there is an outside possibility" the nomination fight might not be resolved until the party's August convention in Tampa, Fla., Barbour said.

Such a scenario would be "unusual," he said, adding that "whoever we nominate, Barack Obama is the great uniter of Republicans."

Barbour also said that, "historically, these nomination contests don't start until February, so it's mighty early in the game." Republicans should focus on the "anemic" economy, he said.
