    Mitt Romney is having the best day ever. After shout outs to the Twitterverse and the sweater vests the helped shape his campaign, Rick Santorum has made the decision to suspend his presidential bid ahead of the Pennsylvania primary. The announcement comes following the recent hospitalization of his 3-year-old daughter who suffers from the chromosomal defect Trisomy 18. At the press conference where Santorum announced his plan to leave the 2012 presidential race, the former Pennsylvania Senator acknowledged, “We had a difficult weekend; Good Friday was a bit of a passion play for us with our daughter Bella.” Santorum added, “Bella is a fighter, she’s doing exceptionally well.”

    While describing his campaign, the man who almost uprooted Romney’s “inevitable” securing of the Republican presidential nomination claimed, “We have tried … to provide a positive vision, not a negative campaign.” Though he is bowing out, Santorum stressed the importance of taking the White House and seizing control of Congress in November. Santorum quipped: “I know a lot of folks — even at the White House — are gonna write ‘game over,’ but this game is a long, long, way from over.”

    Santorum also claimed: “We need a hopeful, positive vision for the country that does more than turns around the economy.”

    Santorum’s decision to suspend his campaign effective today all but confirms that Mitt Romney will seize the GOP nomination. Though former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) remain in the race neither has a viable chance of obtaining the 1,144 delegates needed to net the nomination.
