Skip to comments.Santorum Withdrawing - Fox News Radio
Posted on 04/10/2012 11:04:26 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
The rally in Gettysburg is no longer a rally. It is now a news conference where he will announce his withdrawal.
two minute warning a few seconds ago
what?????? why? to toss it to Romney?
ABC News confirms.
Yep its all over twitter, Santorum is dropping out of the presidential race..sucks, dont know why he is choosing now to do so
KFI in Los Angeles just reported the same thing.
I worry that this may be related to the health of his daughter. Prayers that all is ok.
I am guessing his daughter is pretty sick.
News conference at anytime on FOXNews.
Maybe something to do with Bella’s health.
Ugly!! Just UGLY! The worst Republican Primary I can remember in my 70 year life time!
All the conservatives just bowing down to ROMNEY now.
But I saw on Fox earlier today how she was released from the hospital..I thought that would be good news
COnservative vote no longer divided...Hmmm?
I’d love it if he tossed to Newt! Not because I love Newt, but to make it harder for Romney to waltz into the convention with it locked up.
The whole situation just has me sick to my stomach.
Oh Nose, there’ll be a dozen threads announcing this “news” (there are three already!)
I was searching to see if anyone had posted it and I started to but then thought I had better refresh my browser and there you were.
Thanks for posting.
I heard it on a “commercial” while Listening to Rush and had to turn the radio up REALLLLLLLLLLLLY loud to see if I misunderstood but I didnt.
Because Santorum was heading to a loss in his home state of Pennsylvania. Losing his home state (again) would destroy any chances he could have in future races.
By pulling out now, he preserves his chances in future races. Rick is still young.
Maybe things are worse with Bella than has been publicly announced, and they want to spend what time she has with her? Or could be that he was trailing badly in the GOP primary in his own state, which wouldn’t be good for any kind of future in politics.
wouldn’t it be wonderful if he tossed all his delegates to Gingrich?
Speaking of... what happens to them?
I am still hoping for Gingrich/Cain
What a convoluted, corrupt mess this Primary process is...
Related? Iowa Gov via twitter:
Today, I am endorsing Mitt Romney for President of the United States. - Gov. Terry E. Branstad
Remember the baby that was brought home to go Home.
So he drops out now, after he’s screwed Newt’s chances of beating Romney. What a jerk.
Goodbye Rick.....Take care of your sick child and support Romney so we can get that demon out of the WH....
that is what I thought too . . . lose PA and he is done forever plus he can be with his family and ill daughter and live to fight another day, he is what 52 or 54.
oh yes, I would love to see NEWT gain Santorums support.We just need to watch and see.
And tell me again why he was even a consideration?
I think he was once in congress, or on local TV as a weatherman. I forget/S
It’s probably has less to do with his daughter being sick than that if Rick loses PA, his home state to Romney then his future political career is over....he’s hedging his bets
I know. But I won't be supporting that liberal.
Umm. There's another conservative candidate still in the field. If Santorum joins the Dream Team it could turn the tide.
OH WOW, your right!! I had forgotten about that, I hope that is not the case here, Santorum can drop out of the race but I want that beautiful little girl to be OK, that matters to me then any ol presidential race
Barf...Romney will lose.
I just heard from my postman’s dog and he says Santorum will be announced as the new interim manager for the Marlins!
He has a sickly child, he needs to take care of that baby.....If Romney picks him for something then I’m glad but right now I would think his family is first....
Rickie must be delusional if he thinks he has a political future. He might have to wait 8 years for another run at POTUS. Even if Willard loses this November there will be a lot of GOP talent in the 2016 race, I am thinking of Jindhal, Christie, Rubio, Walker in WI, etc. The only reason Rick did so well was a sign of how bad Willard is and the lack of any legitimate alternative.
Yep, you said it. Who was the spoiler, then?
To avoid the embarrassment of losing his home state for one.
This is supposed to be about Santorum, but Fox is nothing but ROmney-Romney-Romney! They can’t STOP talking about him!
Well then we’ll have something to bitch and complain about for another four years......And I don’t think Romney will loose....Do you want 0bama for another 4 years????? Really?????
Crap - just read Yahoo blurb that said Santorum called Romney to concede. Lord, I hope that doesn’t mean he’s throwing his support to the Mittster...
Throw delegates to Newt - lol.
Newt on Fox News Sunday pretty much conceded to Romney. I know there are many angry FReepers today, trust me I got yelled at by the Admin Moderator when Rick lost IL and I felt like my vote didn't count.
But I will state for the thousandth time. I've met Obama I looked into the eyes of an evil megalomaniac.
I don't need to list how bad he is. I knew that when he threatened HOF NFL Player and Super Bowl Coach Mike Ditka to withdraw from the 2004 IL Senate Race, then he went after GOP Front Runner Jack Ryan releasing sex documents from his divorce from celebrity actress Jeri Ryan. It was "kinky" sex between him and his wife, yet it caused him to withdraw and bring in Alan Keyes the carpetbagger to pander... Lost by 70% of the vote!!!
Now, black panther death threats, GSA gone wild, more green energy scams...
This election is going to determine whether we live in a dictatorship. I'm not going to start cheerleading for Romney. I'm going to scream from the rafters how awful Obama is. And we must do everything we can to stop this man from a second term. We helped GWB in 2000, we threw out Gary Condit, we caught Dan Rather lying and threw him out of his anchor chair, we threw out Gray Davis, the list goes on...
This is the most important race of our lives. Vote that thug out, vote out all of the Rats, every single one. Take back the Senate big time. Then we need to go back to work fixing everything this dictator has destroyed. Starting with the military. The fact that our Navy is at its lowest number since World War 1 should frighten every American. Our enemies are building ships as fast as they can.
History continues to repeat itself, don't think China, Iran, Russia, Syria, Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, North Korea, and every other despot in the world will not lay down arms and sign kumbaya because Obama bows down to them.
Finally pray for our nation, pray that we destroy the Democrats in the Fall. Not only Nationally but in every State race. I hope now that it seems this race is over we can all send our donations, support and prayers to Governor Scott Walker who MUST win. Otherwise you will see a domino effect which will target Governor Kasich of Ohio.
It’s not about being delusional, it’s about hedging ones bet. Rick may not get a chance to run for President again but no one really knows that so whether it’s you, me or him, we always hedge or plan for what may be in the future instead of just crashing completely (losing PA) and removing all doubt that it’s over forever
