The Pennsylvania Republican 2012 primary took place on April 24, 2012. This primary was to be the make or break moment for Rick Santorum, who had just lost three primaries to Mitt Romney, who thus appeared to become the presumptive nominee by achieving a prohibitive lead.
As momentum in the Republican race built for Romney, Santorum suspended his campaign for four days to meet with ‘movement conservatives’ to strategize. Former Family Research Council chief Gary Bauer, who was present at the sit-down with Santorum, called it a ‘strategy meeting to discuss how Senator Santorum prevails.’ But rather than returning to campaigning the next Monday, Rick and Karen Santorum canceled campaign events scheduled right after Easter weekend to be in the hospital with their youngest daughter.
In deference to the sick child, Romney ceased airing attack ads, replacing them with positive introductory ones.
On April 10th, Santorum formally suspended his campaign but his three delegates will attend the Convention in August.
