Rick Santorum suspended his campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination.

Mitt Romney is now the certain Republican nominee to take on President Barack Obama in November, as Mr. Santorum was his main challenger.

Mr. Romney issued this statement:

Senator Santorum is an able and worthy competitor, and I congratulate him on the campaign he ran. He has proven himself to be an important voice in our party and in the nation. We both recognize that what is most important is putting the failures of the last three years behind us and setting America back on the path to prosperity.

While Mr. Romney still needs to win several hundred delegates to clinch the nomination, Mr. Santorum’s departure from the race leaves his path unhindered.
