Rick Santorum has announced he is bowing out of the 2012 presidential race.

Santorum ended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, clearing the path for Mitt Romney to become the nominee.

“We made a decision over the weekend that while this presidential race for us is over for me, and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting,” Santorum said in a press conference today in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Santorum’s three-year-old daughter Bella, who suffers from a genetic disorder called Trisomy 18, was released from the hospital yesterday after becoming ill over the weekend.

He said the health situation “did cause us to think in the role that we have as parents in her life.” He said that “this was a time for prayer and thought over this past weekend,” and that the decision to suspend the campaign was made.

Rick described his daughter as “a fighter and doing exceptionally well.” But he added her illness “did cause us to think about our role as parents. This was a time for prayer and thought this past weekend. Just as it was when we decided to get in this race,” he said.
