One Presidential Candidate Feels the Presence of Yoga Pants Already.

Rick Santorum announced Tuesday that he is suspending his presidential campaign, all but bringing to a close the 2012 GOP presidential contest and effectively handing the nomination to Mitt Romney.  “We made a decision over the weekend that, while this presidential race for us is over — for me — and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting,” Santorum said at a campaign event in Gettysburg, Pa., the site of the historic and pivotal Civil War battle.

Santorum is currently second in the delegate race, but he would have to win upwards of three-fourths of the remaining delegates in order to secure the nomination.  Instead, he seemed to be hoping that Romney would fall short of the delegate threshold and that he could snatch the nomination at the Republican National Convention in August.  Santorum called Romney before his announcement Tuesday to inform him of his decision to drop out, according to a Romney campaign official.
“This race was as improbable as any race you’ll ever see for president,” Santorum said.

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul remain in the campaign, but neither has shown the ability to be a consistent alternative to Romney. Gingrich, in particular, has seen his campaign hit a rough patch of late. He’s finished fourth in the last two major contests and revealed over the weekend that his campaign was $4.5 million in debt.

Here at YPFP, we would like to wish Santorum’s daughter, Bella, a speedy recovery and we hope all is well for the Santorum family.  With that being said, now is the time for the rise of YOGA!  Being that another presidential candidate has dropped out of the 2012 presidential contest, it is time for us here at YPFP to take advantage of this opportunity and conquer all that is yoga.  It is now up to you, fellow Americans, to do what is right and join our movement.  If you haven’t joined the movement yet, now is the time.  Now is the time to stand tall, be proud and SUPPORT THE HUMP!
