— Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination, clearing a path for Mitt Romney to become the nominee.

The former Pennsylvania senator was speaking Tuesday in his home state of Pennsylvania, two weeks before the GOP presidential primary there. Santorum faced a tough fight in his home state against Romney.

Romney was far ahead of Santorum in the race for delegates to the Republican National Convention. Santorum had previously said he wouldn’t drop out of the race, though he has acknowledged he will have to win Pennsylvania if his campaign were to survive.
