    Like it or not, Romneys now the candidate.

    GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Tuesday he is suspending his campaign.

    He made the announcement at the Gettysburg Hotel in Gettysburg, Pa., talking about his young daughter's illness and reflecting on the campaign.

    His 3-year-old daughter Bella was taken to a Virginia hospital Friday with pneumonia. Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, left the campaign trail until this afternoon. The child has a life-threatening genetic disorder known as Trisomy 18.

    "She's a fighter," said Santorum, standing beside his wife and children. "She's doing exceptionally well."

    Santorum also faces an uphill battle against front-runner Mitt Romney in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Five states, including Santorum's home state of Pennsylvania, hold primaries April 24.

    Romney was spending $2.9 million in TV ads in Pennsylvania. Romney was far ahead of Santorum in the race for delegates to the Republican National Convention and will be the party's likely nominee.

    Time to concentrate on the House and Senate.

    It's true that the best thing we can hope for is for the R's to take back the senate.

    Well I hope Romney fairs better than Meg Whitman. For those not in Cali, Whitman was our R governor nominee a few years ago against Moonbeam Brown. She BOUGHT her nomination too.
