Breaking – Rick Santorum Suspends Campaign – Update – Video Added

Rick Santorum is speaking live at a press conference as I write this. He had taken a few days off from campaigning to celebrate Easter, and to spend time with his daughter Bella who was hospitalized over the weekend. He said that after much discussion with his family, he has decided to suspend his campaign.

According to the AP, before the press conference Santorum called Mitt Romney, clearing the path for Romney’s nomination.

The Santorum campaign lasted longer than most people expected, and he made a good run at it. I had my concerns (which I’ve had about every candidate) and wish the former senator and his family the best.

Update: Via Republican Redefined (who linked, thanks) here’s video of the reaction at ABC News.
