[Posted at 2:13 p.m. ET] Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum will announce he will suspend his campaign on Tuesday at an event in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, a senior adviser to the campaign tells CNN.

"We are going to stay involved and stay active in the next couple of months," Santorum said, according to the source.

    ...not to mention funneling more than the usual 10% of our GDP to makers of fine pharmaceuticals.

    Help is on the way. This clears the path for Romney to lead us to the promised land.
    Let's face it. What we need is:
    1) zero abortions
    2) more guns
    3) less contraceptives
    5) more stand your ground laws
    6) less regulation of investment banks
    7) more subsidies for big oil
    8) more anti -women doctrine
    9) less health care
    10) less unions
    11) more right to work states
    12) smaller middle class
    13) more working poor
    14) greater corrosive influence of campaign cash
    15) more negative adds
    16) less separation of church and state
    Let's get back to the commie hating, non socialist, shiny, shimmering country we all love.
    Strike up the band. Happy days are here again. Kiss the babies and increase funding for veterans hospitals.
    And of course a JOD BLESS AMERICA

    I am glad to hear that Santorum is out of the race. He was too far out there for my taste. It was a pleasure seeing his campaign signs being removed from the roadways that were littered up with his smug face.
