Mitt Romney to suspend presidential campaign
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Mitt Romney will suspend his presidential campaign for the Republican nomination, The Associated Press has learned, effectively ceding the nomination to John McCain.
From Utah Policy Daily
New York Times: "Mitt Romney is committed to staying in the Republican presidential race despite his losses on Tuesday, and has an eye on the long-shot possibility of a brokered convention fight, his advisers said Wednesday. ... Tagg Romney said his father was still willing to plow his own money into his presidential bid, hoping that conservative alarm about the candidacy of Senator John McCain of Arizona would continue to grow, allowing the Romney campaign to 'fund-raise outside as well as from my dad and make this a real battle.'"
