Rick Santorum today announced that he is backing out of the hotly contested race to be the Republican Presidential nominee. Citing things such as dwindling popularity and the health of his daughter, Rick Santorum is pulling out essentially giving the Republican Nomination to Mitt Romney.

The nomination and the fight to take out Barak Obama will now fall to only man that has a realistic chance anyways, Mitt Romney. Romney had essentially wrapped up the nomination last week. The only way Santorum would have won was to get 100% of all the remaining electoral votes. Near impossible.

Mitt Romney had out spent, and outclassed Santorum on nearly every front and in a lot of ways Santorum never really had a chance once he switched from a centrist point of view to a hard right wing point of view. His stances on birth control are what seemed to finally put the nail in the coffin.

“We made the decision over the weekend that while this presidential race for us is over for us, for me, and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting,” Santorum said at a press conference. “This race was as improbable as any race as you will ever see for president.”

While he was nearly mathematically eliminated from contention, his daughters sickness this weekend “did cause us to think in the role that we have as parents in her life.” He said that “this was a time for prayer and thought over this past weekend.”

Let’s be serious, folks: Rick Santorum was never going to be president of the United States, and that’s a very good thing.(image) 2 minutes ago via TweetDeck ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
