Rick Santorum reportedly plans to drop out of presidential race

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R) will reportedly announce he is suspending his presidential campaign Wednesday evening, according to two anonymous Republican sources who spoke with CNN.

2016 was a vastly different campaign for Santorum, who just four years ago emerged as the GOP winner of the Iowa caucus. At the Iowa caucus on Monday, however, Santorum received only 1 percent of GOP support with 1,783 votes. At one location, his own precinct chairman didn't vote for him.
