Republican Santorum drops out of White House race, endorses Rubio

File photo of Republican U.S. presidential candidate Senator Rick Santorum speaking at the 10th Annual Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit in Altoona, IowaRick Santorum withdrew from the race for the U.S. Republican presidential nomination on Wednesday and said he would endorse Senator Marco Rubio in the race for the White House. Santorum, a 57-year-old former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, won the Iowa caucuses four years ago but managed only 1 percent of the vote in the Iowa contest on Monday. Santorum, in an appearance on Fox News announcing his withdrawal and endorsement of Rubio, called the Florida senator “a tremendously gifted young man and … a born leader.” He said Rubio “can bring this country together, not just moderates and conservatives but young and old.” Rubio, 44, finished third in Monday’s Iowa caucuses, the first contest in the state-by-state battle to decide who will be the Republican nominee in the November presidential election.
