MANHEIM, Pa. - The news had already spread through the Pennsylvania heartland, but still they arrived three, four, even five hours early, to see to the only man in the presidential race whom they believe shares their values. Many supporters of Rick Santorum, in line to hear his first extended post-campaign speech Tuesday evening, said they will vote - unenthusiastically - for Mitt Romney against President Obama in the fall. But a few said they simply didn't know what to do. "I have to really pray about that," said Irene Alleman, 80, who stood for hours in the biting wind outside the chapel at Lancaster Bible College, where Santrom was to speak.

I T WAS DEFINITELY an E-ticket of a political roller-coaster ride, with thrills that ranged from revealing that college is actually for "snobs" to debating whether the Crusades were a good thing. And when Rick Santorum finally pulled the inevitable kill switch in his former home state of Pennsylvania on Tuesday, it seemed clear that two men had a better chance of winning future presidential elections than when he started. One of them is Santorum himself. The second - unfortunately for GOP leaders - is President Obama.

And then there was one. Rick Santorum's announcement Tuesday that he was suspending his presidential campaign, coupled with Newt Gingrich's earlier decision to scale back his effort, has effectively wrapped up the Republican presidential nomination for Mitt Romney. Thus the outcome of Pennsylvania's April 24 presidential primary will be moot. Neither this state's voters, nor New Jersey's, whose primary isn't until June 5, will have a say in deciding the GOP nominee. While that is unfortunate, the outcome gives Republicans their best choice to run against President Obama in the fall.

GETTYSBURG - Bowing to the math of the moment, Rick Santorum suspended his ailing presidential campaign today, ensuring Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee in November. "We made a decision over the weekend, that while this presidential race for us is over, for me, and we will suspend our campaign today, we are not done fighting," the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania announced in a speech here. Santorum's surprise move came one day after his disabled daughter Bella was released from a hospital in Virginia, where Santorum now lives.

If Mitt Romney secures the Republican presidential nomination, he might want to start worrying about whether Rick Santorum is going to give him the John McCain treatment. Twice in the 2008 primaries, as McCain was closing in on the nomination, Santorum took to his newspaper column to trash him as moderate. McCain "has too often joined the very people who seek to destroy and replace what we fight to conserve and improve," Santorum wrote. "And so we wonder: Is this the man we can trust to take our case to the American people?"

Now it's Romney vs. Obama. With that in mind and a bruising primary fight finally behind him, Mitt Romney bathed in the praise Tuesday night of a cheering crowd of Chester County Republicans - finally, their party's presidential nominee in all but name. Hours earlier, Rick Santorum, the former Massachusetts governor's last significant GOP rival, suspended his campaign amid a family health crisis and a growing chorus calls from party leaders for him to drop out of the race.

WASHINGTON - The ill daughter of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been taken to the hospital. Santorum's campaign said Friday that 3-year-old Bella had been returned to the hospital. She has the rare genetic condition Trisomy 18 and was hospitalized earlier this year with pneumonia, prompting Santorum to take a campaign break before the Florida primary. The campaign did not identify the hospital or say why her parents took Bella there. Spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a written statement, "The family requests prayers and privacy as Bella works her way to recovery.

As the common thinking goes, Philadelphia's suburbs are home to just the sort of moderate Republican who is comfortable with Mitt Romney: well-educated, well-off, and well-disposed to his business background. But if Romney's last major challenger, Rick Santorum, is to secure the home-state primary win he describes as crucial to his campaign, the former Pennsylvania senator can't afford to count those suburbs out. So far, local Republican leaders say, Santorum has shown signs of doing just that.
