Rick Santorum has announced he's stepping aside from his presidential campaign, but those GOP advertisements continue to grow downright nasty as presidential contenders Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul say they will stay in the race. They both seem to think they are the true conservative candidates to beat President Barack Obama in the November general election.

However, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is now closer to being the Republican Party's nominee his summer. But Ron and Newt are hoping there's time left for Republicans to pick a more suitable alternative.

Although the race is now down to three and the other two campaigns now appear to be more insignificant than ever before, it's not going to be over until the fat elephant sings.
