Rick Santorum drops out of 2016 presidential race

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum announced Thursday that he is suspending his 2016 presidential campaign, all but bringing to a close the 2016 GOP presidential contest and effectively handing the nomination to someone who is not Rick Santorum. "We made a decision over the holiday that, while this presidential race for us is over, we are not done fighting," Santorum said at a campaign event in Gettysburg, Pa., the site of the former Senator's historic and pivotal 2012 campaign suspension. "This decision also saves me valuable time. I may go ahead and drop out of the 2020 race as well, just to get it over with." Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump and Mitt Romney are also considering dropping out of the 2016 presidential race in the coming weeks.
