Another One Bites the Dust
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum ended his bid for the White House Wednesday and said he will support Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.
Santorum announced on Fox News Channel that he had decided, "The best way to do what I set out to do when we announced the run for president ... (is) by not furthering our campaign."
He said Rubio shares his values and "is in a better position to do well in this race." He described Rubio as a "born leader" and praised his "optimistic" message.
Rubio "is the new generation and someone that can bring this country together," Santorum said, adding that the 44-year-old senator is "taking the wine I've been trying to sell and putting it in new wineskins."
