Mitt Romney quits race for White House

Mitt Romney has quit in his campaign for presidential candidate. Before waving goodbye to supporters he said, "This is not an easy decision, I hate to lose". But he said he was standing down for the good of the party adding, "I feel I must stand aside for our party and for our country". In a reference to withdrawal plans much talked about by both Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton he said, "We cannot allow the next president of the United State to retreat in the face of evil extremism". The Republican campaign is now left with the favourite John McCain leading the push for the White House. The other remaining contenders, Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul have yet to state their intentions following poor results after Super Tuesday [CNN / BBC / Sky News].
