Santorum si è arreso a Gettysburg 10.04.12

L'abbandono di Rick Santorum spiana la strada alla nomination di Mitt Romney.
Termina la miglior corsa di un candidato repubblicano totalmente improbabile sin dai tempi della campagna di Steve Forbes nel 1996.

All'inizio delle primarie presidenziali in pochi avrebbero scommesso che un senatore con un budget ridotto e uscito perdente dalla sua ultima campagna elettorale con un distacco di 18 punti, perdendo oltre 700.000 voti, sarebbe riuscito a imporsi in 11 caucus.

On the night he lost the Illinois primary, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum vowed to fight on, not from the Land of Lincoln but from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Three weeks later, Gettysburg is where Santorum chose to end his presidential campaign.

The choice to stage two major events in Gettysburg shows how Santorum would like his campaign to be seen: not as another longshot presidential bid but as an important part of world history.

"What I tried to bring to the battle was what Abraham Lincoln brought to this battlefield back in 1863," Santorum said in his concession speech, "when he talked about this country being conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
