    Rick Santorum tonight will make two major announcements. The former Pennsylvania Senator who lost his 2006 campaign by a historic margin and then actually ran for president in 2012, and again this year, is pulling out of the race for the White House.

    Amid wild speculation, the far-right wing evangelical theocratic Republican tonight is also expected to announce an endorsement of another GOP candidate.

    "When asked about a possible endorsement," CNN's Dana Bash reports, "Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said he hasn't spoken to the former Pennsylvania senator on Wednesday." 

    "I think he's fantastic," Rubio told Bash.

    Since the Iowa Caucuses, Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul have also dropped out.
