TAMPA, Fla. -- Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), who mounted a spirited and often contentious challenge to Mitt Romney during the Republican presidential primary earlier this year, will hold a conference call Thursday with delegates to the GOP convention who support him.

Santorum adviser John Brabender confirmed that the call will take place with Santorum's delegates on Thursday evening.

"I can confirm that the call tomorrow is to talk about the convention," Brabender told The Huffington Post.

Brabender did not say that Santorum would release his delegates, allowing them to vote for Romney. But with Santorum set to give a headliner speech to the convention on Tuesday, it seems likely that the social conservative favorite is set to recommend that his supporters cast their votes for Romney at the convention.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), another of Romney's primary challengers, released his delegates to Romney on Tuesday.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article stated that Santorum would address the Republican National Convention on Monday. His speech will take place Tuesday.
