Probably not as good as was thought. He also has a really sick kid and my guess is he would rather spend the time with family than on an over campaign.



Romney's been blitzing PA, and Santorum lost PA after he was elected there.

he didn't just lose. he lost by the largest margin in a senate race years in 26 years.

In 2006, Rick Santorum, less than two months before suffering one of the worst losses in Senate history,
was named one of three “most corrupt” Senators by CREW, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

Well you should qualify that by saying he lost by the largest margin for an incumbent in a senate race in 26 years.

He ranks as the 25th worst loss for an incumbent in Senate history.

But for his supporters that doesn't matter. He is considered a man of principal. But even people who like him realize that he is probably un-electable in a general election.

Santorum resigned today. Gingrich and Ron Paul vowed to stay in the race, probably with Romney's tacit approval so they can stay in the headlines.
