Text size Aa Aa

In the US, Mitt Romney has withdrawn from the campaign to win the Republican Party’s nomination for the presidency.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.

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 Huckabee is now McCain’s main challenger.
