BREAKING: Like Chicago, Romney Is Out. Romney Is Out.

We won't have Mitt Romney to kick around anymore.

After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, Iíve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee.

Let me give you some of my thinking. First, I am convinced that with the help of the people on this call, we could win the nomination. Our finance calls made it clear that we would have enough funding to be more than competitive. With few exceptions, our field political leadership is ready and enthusiastic about a new race. And the reaction of Republican voters across the country was both surprising and heartening. I know that early poll numbers move up and down a great deal during a campaign, but we would have no doubt started in a strong position. One poll out just today shows me gaining support and leading the next closest contender by nearly two to one. I also am leading in all of the four early states. So I am convinced that we could win the nomination, but fully realize it would have been difficult test and a hard fight.

Full statement here.

Heartache. Just heartache.

The drinking starts early today my friends.

Added: Allow me to the be the first to congratulate Jeb Bush on his ascendancy to the GOP presidential nomination.

[Bonus content: BenK] Nice call Daily Beast. Well, it appears the Daily Beast completely scrubbed their original article claiming that their inside sources told them Mitt Romney was running. It appears that they didn't note the change either.

[Extra, Extra Bonus Content: Drew]

Oh, by the way, Mitt is having dinner tonight with.....Chris Christie.
