Well, another one bytes the dust; I actually thought he would be a little tougher than this; I expected him to fight until the bitter end?

What says you ATS? Who will be next, they are dropping like flies
It will be interesting if he backs TRUMP!!!!!!


Santorum will endorse a candidate for the nomination, two GOP sources said. He, along with Huckabee, previously appeared with Trump at the billionaire's event for veterans that was held opposite the Fox News debate in Des Moines, Iowa, on Thursday.





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.

The Santorum sources did not say whom Santorum would endorse. When asked about a possible endorsement, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said he hasn't spoken to the former Pennsylvania senator on Wednesday.

"I think he's fantastic," Rubio told CNN's Dana Bash.

Santorum faced a drastically different landscape this year than he did in 2012. A crowded field of 17 Republicans and lackluster early polling kept him off the main debate stage for each of the GOP debates. He also faced competition for the hearts evangelical voters, particularly from Ted Cruz.

If he backs Trump do you think the five voters who supported him will back Trump?

I want to say Jim Gilmore will be next, he got 12 votes in Iowa...no, really, 12 people in the whole state voted for him. He's still there though.

I might be willing to put money on Christie or Fiorina dropping next.

You know those dirty rascals; it would be a revenge backing at that; like I said last year, this one will go down at the most controversial election in the history or elections:-)

I thought Christie dropped already, I could have sworn I saw a quake in California thread earlier...

I dont see how Christie has a chance in hell; he has rolled over as much as Billary in the past year -


1. Handed a No-Bid Contract to Firm With Questionable Political Ties
2. Betting On Casinos, Not Women's Health
In his first three budgets, Christie cut women's health funding claiming the state didn't have the money. Then, he somehow found the aforementioned $260 million to spend on Revel, an Atlantic City casino (which just went bankrupt).
3. Lying To Kill ARC Tunnel
5. Weakened Over 100 Essential Environmental Protections

Lot of these guys dropping out had 2%. Add those 2%'s up and you get to 10% pretty quickly. If they all endorse (cough) Rubio, we have a whole new race. Here's the delegate count

Cruz: 8
Trump: 7
Rubio: 7
Carson: 3
Bush: 1
Paul: 1
Not pledged: 1

So sure, Cruz "won," but there's no effective difference between Trump and Rubio, And as these other guys drop out,m surely all their delegates aren't going to Cruz, which puts a whole 'nother spin on this.

You are loving the Rubio aren't you?

Didn't you tip him to surprise everyone in the latest Caucus?

You know what? Even though Rubio is a Republican, I am going all out to support that dude, because out of everyone on here, for whatever reason, I trust your political judgment.

Well, I'll tell ya. I did peg Rubio this time. Just got lucky. I'm more anti-Hillary than anything else right now. I think both Trump and Sanders are naive, but they wont do any real harm if Congress rides herd on them. Cruz is a little strange to me, but fact is, no one in Congress likes him. But Hillary is manipulative.

I'm very scared of her. She has already caused some serious damage, and she could do more if she got in.
