Romney has dropped out, announcing it during aÂ surprise speech at CPAC:
FOXNews.com - Romney Drops Presidential Bid, Stuns CPAC Audience - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum
WASHINGTON â€” Mitt Romney suspended his presidential campaign Thursday, telling a stunned conservative group that continuing his uphill battle against John McCain would hurt the Republican Party and make it more likely that the Democratic candidate would win the general election in November.â€?If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention â€¦ Iâ€™d forestall the launch of a national campaign and, frankly, Iâ€™d be making it easier for Sen. Clinton or Obama to win,â€? Romney told the Conservative Political Action Conference.
It`s ironic that Romney should cite party loyalty
as a reason for letting John McCain have the nomination, since party loyalty isÂ one thing not covered
by McCain`s world famous "sense of honor."
