Santorum said he was dropping out because of his daughter's fragile health. She had just be in the hospital the weekend before his withdrawal - for the second time during his campaign, I believe.
Frankly, I believe what he said, and I don't blame him. They really don't know how long they will have her with them.
It's didn't stop him from making attacks ads with LIES against Newt - the defender of Our Constitution, the one who is ready, on day one, to undo some of the damage barry has done on our country. As a father, that should be his concern but he thwarted that chance. So, not many are deceived by his fork tongue. It was his 'assigned time' to drop out according to his boss and it's plan. Only those who can be deceived were.
