Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign.

He will make an announcement shortly, and he will almost certainly say that he wants to spend more time with his family, including one of his daughters who is ill. A lot of politicians say that; very few of them genuinely mean it. Santorum means it.

Whether he says it or not, the main reason is nonetheless because he cannot win, and because he does not want to lose the primary in his home state, which could further damage his political career.

In any case, good riddance.
