Romney to call it quits:

From the Associated Press:

Mitt Romney will suspend his presidentialcampaign for the Republican nomination, The Associated Press haslearned, effectively ceding the nomination to John McCain.

"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or (Barack) Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror," Romney planned to say in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

More later.
