Rick Santorum suspends presidential campaign

...per Washington Post (ETA: Post is denying that they reported this)

Per TPM:

quote:

There is a “very good likelihood” Rick Santorum is droping out, according to an aide to the campaign. The source said that the campaign had scheduled a call with supporters and that they were expecting confirmation of the news soon.

Now confirmed by NBC

Ron Paul campaign to claim renewed relevance in 5..., 4..., 3..., 2...

As soon as Gingrich is gone I bet romney moves to the middle faster than you can say Massachusetts.

Very possible. I think it would have happened eventually but this may have sped it up.

Just found this. LINK and this. LINK

Newt & Paul are still in it. We can still have a brokered convention. It's not too late to defeat Romney!

For his sake, I really hope not. Won't vote for him, but don't want anything bad to happen to his family.

He ran a pretty strong campaign. It's hard to fight against media that makes up things that you say and perception by the easily influenced is a hard thing to change. Even when that perception is based on false information and inaccurate presentation.

It felt to me like he was waiting for the inevitable skeleton to fall out of Mitt's closet.

And the PA GOP Chair has confirmed it according to a politico reporter. Twitter link

I am pretty sure she is out of the hospital and ok but I can see his daughters condition making the decision for him. He probably realized that if he was to somehow become the nominee and President then he would have very little time to actually deal with his daughters illness if something did come up.

I don't like 90% of what Rick says and does but I really respect his commitment to put his family above his political aspirations.

To be fair, every candidate not named Obama faces these hurdles.

It's a shame people had access to his voting record.

It's over....just like it was in January when I said it was over then and I was laughed at.

It's over.
