Rick Santorum quit the presidential campaign Tuesday, clearing the way for Mitt Romney to claim the Republican nomination.

Santorum, appearing with his wife and family in his home state
of Pennsylvania, told supporters the race for him was over, but the
fight to defeat President Barack Obama would go on.

Santorum made no mention of Romney, and stressed that he'd gone
farther than anyone expected, competing "against all odds."

The delegate totals told the tale of Santorum's demise. Romney
has more than twice as many delegates as Santorum and is on pace to
reach the number needed to clinch the nomination - 1,144 - by early
June. Still in the race, but not considered a factor: former House
Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul.
