Romney pulls out of US presidential race


Mitt Romney has withdrawn from the campaign in the US to win the Republican party’s nomination for the presidency.

Romney had vowed to fight on after a poor showing in the Super Tuesday round of nomination elections.

But he has now confirmed his withdrawal:

“I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America, in this time of war, I feel I now have to stand aside, for our party and for our country,” he told supporters in Washington.

The Super Tuesday results gave Arizona Senator John McCain a commanding lead in the race.

Romney and his advisors had lengthy discussions on whether to continue yesterday.

Mike Huckerbee is now McCain’s main challenger.
