After calling Mitt Romney to concede the race for the Republican nomination, Rick Santorum suspended his campaign Tuesday during a press conference in Pennsylvania, his home state.
“We will suspend our campaign effective today,” Santorum said surrounded by members of his family in Gettysburg.
Santorum spent the weekend off the campaign trail with his 3-year-old daughter, Bella, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder, after she was rushed to the hospital Friday.
“We made a decision over the weekend that, while this presidential race for us is over, for me, and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting,” he said. (Yahoo News)
Since Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are behind Santorum, it looks as if Romney will be the Republican candidate for president. He is not the one I would have preferred and I am not sure he can beat Obama, but I will vote for him and do what I can to see he is elected. I hope that every Conservative will do likewise. It might be tempting to hope Romney loses in the expectation of getting a more truly Conservative candidate in 2016, but I don’t think this country can recover from another four years of Barack Obama.
