Mitt Romney Suspends Campaign

Mitt Romney announced today that he will suspend his presidential campaign. After a not so stellar showing on Super Tuesday, the Romney campaign did the math and realized the odds are tremendously against them.

“If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,” Romney told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.

His comments was a bow to John McCain who has constantly argued his strong national security credentials and position on Iraq.

Of course, the bigger news is John McCain is now all but confirmed as the Republican nominee.

Because Romney has not officially dropped out, he will keep all his delegates. They are not bound to vote for the candidate he endorses.
