Rick Santorum plans to meet with Mitt Romney on Friday, May 4, although an official endorsement is not likely to immediately follow, Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley tells Yahoo News.

Santorum, who defeated Romney in Iowa and in 10 other states during the Republican presidential primaries, was Romney's chief rival before he dropped out of the race earlier this month.

Gidley said they were still working out the details of an endorsement, although Romney has predicted that he and Santorum will campaign together.

The location of the meeting is still being determined.
