Just after Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) dropped out of the race, former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) is out!
Once the candidate who was leading Mitt Romney for months during the 2012 after winning Iowa, Santorum didn’t gain traction this time.
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is ending his presidential bid, two Republican sources told CNN.
He is expected to make the announcement Wednesday night and will endorse a candidate.
Santorum won the 2012 Iowa caucuses and ended that race with the second-most number of delegates to eventually GOP nominee Mitt Romney. But he was unable to capture any momentum this year, despite extensive barnstorming efforts in Iowa.
He is the third Republican presidential candidate to drop out after Monday’s caucuses. Mike Huckabee ended his campaign that night, and Rand Paul suspended his campaign Wednesday morning.

Santorum has been a tireless champion of the pro-life cause and an American patriot. Rumors are swirling that Santorum has been in meetings with Donald Trump recently.
This race is quickly becoming a 3-man race, as candidates are quickly dropping out.
