Republicans are starting to gravitate toward presidential candidate Mitt Romney, says former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. To be sure, “this race is far from over,” with both Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich maintaining strong support, Huckabee, a 2008 presidential candidate, told Fox News today.

In Ohio, which holds its primary Tuesday, “the race is really tight,” Huckabee said, according to The Hill. “The momentum is with Romney. Rick Santorum has a very solid level of support there, so it could go either way.”

But the momentum is moving toward the former Massachusetts governor, Huckabee said. “If the trend continues ... that we've started to see with Romney, sort of, bringing people together as people are saying 'Okay, look, if he's going to win, let's go ahead and get behind him',” The Hill reported.

Indeed, “that's what I think is starting to happen,” Huckabee said.

Still, he said the race hasn’t been decided by any means. “I wouldn’t count Newt Gingrich out,” Huckabee said. “I still think people are making a big mistake when they think Newt is finished. He’s shown before his resiliency. He had a great night at our forum the other night. I just don’t think Newt is anywhere near the finish line.”
