Rick Santorum announced on April 10, 2012, that he was suspending his presidential campaign, all but bringing to a close the 2012 GOP presidential contest and effectively handing the nomination to Mitt Romney.

“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 at a campaign event in Gettysburg, Pa., the site of the historic and pivotal Civil War battle.

The former Pennsylvania senator had been Romney’s top opponent, but he suffered a trio of defeats in early April in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and his daughter, Bella, had been hospitalized for a second time during the campaign due to complications from a rare genetic disorder.
