Rick Santorum drops out of Presidential Race!

A rather surprising decision by Rick Santorum. He has decided to drop out the Presidential Race. Multiple sources have confirmed this and Yahoo news has learned that Rick Santorum called Mitt Romney Tuesday to say he is ending his presidential campaign.

Rick Santorum will be giving a brief speech to his supporters.

Santorum is scheduled to make an announcement at a press conference in Gettysburg, Pa., at 2 p.m. ET.

Calls to several campaign aides from Yahoo News were not returned before the event.

The former Pennsylvania senator spent most of 2011 on a grueling and often lonely campaign tour through Iowa. His strenuous underdog campaign was organized by a skeleton staff and run the old fashioned way: By methodically speaking with voters face-to-face, town by town. Candidates like Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Herman Cain rose and fell throughout 2011, while Santorum spent the year mostly relegated to the far end of the debate stage.

This leaves Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich. With Mitt Romney leading the race the only real competition he faced was Rick Santorum, not anymore.
