Rival Campaigns React to Santorum’s Withdrawal

By on 4.10.12 | 3:22PM

Rick Santorum's remaining opponents for the Republican presidential nomination have all released statements reacting to the former senator's suspension of his campaign.

Mitt Romney: Senator Santorum is an able and worthy competitor, and I congratulate him on the campaign he ran.

Newt Gingrich: I humbly ask Senator Santorum's supporters to visit Newt.org to review my conservative record and join us as we bring these values to Tampa. We know well that only a conservative can protect life, defend the Constitution, restore jobs and growth and return to a balanced budget.

Ron Paul (through a spokesman): Congratulations to Senator Santorum on running such a spirited campaign.  Dr. Paul is now the last – and real – conservative alternative to Mitt Romney.  We plan to continue running hard, secure delegates, and press the fight for limited, constitutional government in Tampa.

The president was too busy inveighing against wealth creation to comment at the time of this post.
