Romney Suspends

WASHINGTON (AP) – John McCain effectively sealed the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday as chief rival Mitt Romney suspended his faltering presidential campaign. “I must now stand aside, for our party and our country,” Romney told conservatives.

“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 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 told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.  Liz Sidoti  2-7-2008

Republican Debate Tonight

With Rudy Giuliani slated to bow out of the race and Mike Huckabee limping badly, McCain and Romney are almost certain to engage each other more sharply than they did in last week’s rather tepid GOP forum in Boca Raton, Fla.

The stakes are especially high for Romney. The former Massachusetts governor lost to McCain in Florida and now must try to thwart his momentum with the multistate Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses next week.

In a possible prelude to Wednesday’s exchanges, Romney in recent days called the Arizona senator dishonest, liberal, an economic novice and a lover of tax hikes. He sharply criticized McCain’s Senate record on immigration, campaign finance laws and energy.

McCain in turn ridiculed Romney’s shift on matters such as abortion rights, and said Romney had supported a premature withdrawal from Iraq.

McCain enters the debate with Giuliani’s likely endorsement and a new boost of confidence for his once-staggering campaign, putting the onus on Romney to persuade GOP voters to resist a McCain bandwagon.

The two-hour debate will be carried by CNN at 8 p.m. EST from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.  Liz Sidoti  1-30-2008
