Santorum Ends Presidential Bid in Pennsylvania

Former Pennsylvania U. S. Senator Rick Santorum has suspended his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination in the same state where he started it last June.  Santorum announced on Tuesday in Gettysburg that he would suspend his race for the White House.

Santorum won 11 primaries, but front runner Mitt Romney had won the largest share of the delegates so far. His exit comes just two weeks before the Pennsylvania primary.

Santorum told reporters while the presidential race is over for him, he won’t give up the fight to keep President Obama from achieving a second term. Santorum did not endorse Romney at his press conference and left without answering questions from reporters.
