Hayley Barbour says he will back Republican nominee

WASHINGTON -- Former Republican National Committee Chairman Haley Barbour says he has no plans to endorse any of the 2016 GOP candidates for president but that he will ultimately support the nominee.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Barbour said Saturday that front-runner Donald Trump is best positioned to win a majority of the delegates ahead of the July convention, but added that there is "some chance that no one will win a majority in the primaries or caucuses."

Barbour detailed the economic shortfalls of President Barack Obama's administration and said that he will ultimately support the Republican nominee because "whoever that is will be better than Hillary Clinton."
