Let's get reaction now from senior political analyst Brit Hume good evening -- and -- more about this campaign well I think.
That -- term did the right thing for himself and his family.
I'm sure he was in the campaign is in debt and that he is probably -- Has gone into his personal savings he has a big -- a lot of lot of mouths to feed.
Kids' schools to think about but I also think he did the wise thing politically.
He was in real danger of losing Pennsylvania.
-- a Republican only racist primary again having lost it so badly -- in 2006 and having been left for dead.
He has revived his political fortunes he's he is back.
As of as a major figure in the Republican Party if you were to lose that state again that would have been done a lot of what he's accomplished not all of -- -- a great deal so.
Getting out now I think leaves intact.
His achievement in this race which is considerable.
It was clear there was animosity between Rick Santorum Mitt Romney.
In part because the what Santorum said -- the negative ads that we're we're piling up.
He didn't mention Mitt Romney by name in the.
Speech today significant I think he's.
Made peace was -- reality that he Santorum isn't gonna make it I don't think he has yet made peace.
With his relationship with -- Mitt Romney but my guess is that will come with time I mean look we talked about this eight days ago right here.
And it was at that time it appeared to me I think and others that this man was so full of excitement and exhilaration that what -- done.
That he was nowhere near ready to get a but nothing's gonna happen quickly and politics and -- several days to reflect.
He'll have to reflects -- more -- -- before he's able to have to come out from it -- but he will in my judgment in the fullness of time and he should.
Last thing Newt Gingrich Ron Paul still in this race Newt Gingrich saddened that very seat with you hosting FOX News Sunday and it sounded.
Like he was a guy that was getting ready to leave the race.
He doesn't sound like that over the past point four.
No he doesn't look strong tests and services easy task because he has and any money he acknowledged that the east of fort 484 point eight million dollars in debt he's got to pay that off peak he doesn't have the money to campaign as -- need in these upcoming states.
So he you know he he's still there.
And he makes attracts votes.
We can't effectively campaign and his and -- so far behind in delegates there's really no way barring you know Mitt Romney following me or if you -- Britain breaking his neck or something.
That that Gingrich could ever be the man and a departing turns to not that it would even if that happened so I think.
No I think he's he's made peace a reality too -- he's not talking like today and Ron Paul goes all the way well he'll go all the way yours was going to but you know his role in all this is really shrunk.
From the beginning when he looked like he might actually win a race or two it never happened.
Brit thank you very.
