Former Senator Rick Santorum, who was trailing Candidate Mitt Romney in delegates and had very little hope of catching up to him in the race for the GOP nomination, announced Tuesday that he was quitting.

This is a victory to the Republican establishment, as Santorum represented the conservative—some say principled—wing of the party.

“We made a decision over the weekend that while this presidential race for us is over, for me, and we will suspend our campaign today, we are not done fighting,” Santorum said, while his wife and close staff were looking on tearfully. “This game is a long, long, long way from over.”

He did not mention Mitt Romney.
