Santorum pulls out of GOP race

 
City A.M. Reporter
RICK Santorum ended his improbable run for the White House late last night after leading a Republican tilt to the right that could dog the more moderate front-runner, Mitt Romney, in November’s presidential election.

Romney moved to the right on social issues to try to outflank Santorum but that leaves him, and Republican congressional candidates, exposed in November when the electorate will be more moderate.

Santorum was an outspoken critic of gay marriage and abortion.
