And apparently reality has hit the Santorum Campaign as well

News is breaking that Rick Santorum is about to drop out of the presidential race in a joint appearance with Mitt Romney.

Rick Santorum on Morning Joe quick blog

Before Santorum comes on Michael Steele points out the "revisionist" history "Every establishment republican supported Arlen" and the table pointed out what I've said over and over, there is no way you are going to oppose an incumbent in the same party in your own state that is your colleague in the Senate.

Rick Santorum and the clarity of Reality

Rick Santorum Catholicism is rapidly becoming an issue in this race, at least for the left.
