WASHINGTON — The Senate's top Republican says it's time for his party to turn its attention to the fall presidential campaign.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is stopping short of endorsing front-runner Mitt Romney as the GOP's nominee.

But McConnell tells CNN's "State of the Union" that it's in the best interest of his party to coalesce around the strongest candidate to beat President Barack Obama in November.

GOP voters will weigh in during primaries Tuesday in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Romney is ahead in the polls heading into those contests.
