U.S. Rep. Steve King, one of Iowa’s most prominent conservative politicians, is spending this afternoon hunting pheasants near Adel with former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum – their second hunting trip in the past three months

But King, whose endorsement is highly sought by Republican presidential candidates, told the Des Moines Register he has no plans today to make an endorsement of Santorum or anyone else.

“I haven’t made a decision,” King said, acknowledging that time is running short before the Jan. 3 Iowa Caucuses. “I think it has more to do with the field of candidates that are out there. There hasn’t been one constitutional conservative that just emerged to run away with the pack.”
