Rick Santorum, former PA senator and Republican Presidential candidate just announced that he is suspending his campaign for president.  The announcement occurred at a press conference in Gettysburg PA.   The announcement was unexpected.  Although he has been receiving pressure from pundits, other campaigns and the establishment to drop out in an effort to unify behind Romney, there was not much recent speculation that an actual decision was imminent.  The decision comes on the heels of the hospitalization and release of his daughter, Bella, whom we wish the best as she continues to recover.  Despite an impressive showing in several recent states, his campaign has been struggling recently and he had even fallen behind Romney in polling conducted in his home state of Pennsylvania.  Three candidates remain in the race, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.  Mitt Romney is leading in the delegate count and although far behind, Gingrich and Paul have both stated they will remain in until the convention.

  1. Though I’m very disappointed, I respect Mr. Santorum’s decision.  Wondering if he can assign his delegates to Gingrich. Not sure Gingrich is any better than Romney but for some reason, I’d rather take my chances with Newt.  
    God bless, guide, and keep the Santorum family.
