Next One To Drop? Santorum To 'Reassess' Presidential Bid

While Sen. Rick Santorum eked out a win over Gov. Mitt Romney in the 2012 Republican Iowa Caucuses, he could not repeat his success. The former Pennsylvania Senator finished second to last at 11th place with one percent of the vote. Former Republican Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore was last with zero, but he did manage to get 12 people to vote for him.

Now, the Santorum camp is reassessing their campaign after Monday night’s results (via Des Moines Register):

We are going to spend a couple of days just thinking and praying, and figure out what we are going to do, and we will make a decision,” Santorum told The Des Moines Register after addressing about 30 supporters at the Hilton Garden Inn in Johnston

After Iowa, Santorum had planned to focus on the Feb. 20 South Carolina Republican presidential primary, where he has scheduled a 46-county campaign tour starting Wednesday. But those plans could be in jeopardy after Monday night.

Christine already reported on Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) suspending his presidential campaign this morning. Is Santorum the next one to leave?
