    Santorum suspends campaign

    Santorum suspends campaign

    Just breaking, via NY Times:

    Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, according two of his advisers, bowing to the inevitability of Mitt Romney’s nomination and ending his improbable, come-from-behind quest to become the party’s conservative standard-bearer in the fall.

    Mr. Santorum is due to make the announcement at a stop in his home state of Pennsylvania after a weekend in which he tended to his three-year-old daughter, Bella, who had been hospitalized with pneumonia.

    A 2 p.m. press conference is scheduled, live video feed here.

    Update:  Newt reacts:

    “I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa so that the conservative movement has a real choice. I humbly ask Senator Santorum’s supporters to visit Newt.org to review my conservative record and join us as we bring these values to Tampa. We know well that only a conservative can protect life, defend the Constitution, restore jobs and growth and return to a balanced budget.”

    His website has been updated:

    Well, the nice thing about living in California, besides the weather, is that I won’t have to vote for Mitt Romney.

    The only good thing about Mitt Romney is that I won’t feel compelled to donate to his campaign. He has all the money he needs on his own or with help from his buddies on Wall Street who got him this far.

    I Do have friends who wanted to vote for Newt but voted for Rick as the Anti-Mitt.

    Today I caught this from Right Scoop:

    http://www.therightscoop.com/newt-looking-forward-to-a-one-on-one-match-with-romney/

    I’ll keep on hoping for Newt – our Primary and DELEGATE SELECTION was a week or so ago.

    The Audio for the at the time depressing news that Palin was Not going to run is available as an MP3 download.

    Back in October when I went over that in great detail her intended focus is to get as many conservatives as possible into Congress, both in the Senate and in the House.

    That was my intent through most of 2011 in addition to my support;

    Newt was and is my second preferred candidate.

    My ability to choose the more conservative of two congressional candidates has now passed.

    What hasn’t passed is voting in any coming primaries:

    Romney won in Michigan as well probably as Maryland primarily by voter suppression,

    AND when the “Eyeores” tell us we have to “Support Romney Or Else!” I’m…..Oh, Nevermind.
