Reports: Perry to quit GOP race! Newt’s ex-wife disparages him! Santorum won in Iowa?

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination just five months ago, reportedly will drop out of the race today and endorse former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

This is not good news for Mitt Romney, but I doubt that it will derail the former Massachusetts governor’s bid for the GOP nomination.

The story is HERE:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will drop out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday ahead of South Carolina’s primary election, CNN reports.

Jeff Zeleny at the New York Times confirms the news.

Perry is expected to address his decision to abandon his campaign at a press conference in North Charleston, S.C. at 11 a.m. ET.

Meanwhile, it says HERE that one of Gingrich’s ex-wives blasts him in an interview to be aired tonight on ABC.

And there’s WORD that a recount of caucus votes in Iowa shows that Rick Santorum may have finished narrowly ahead of Romney, rather than the other way around.

 UPDATE: The satirists at The Onion offer THIS HILARIOUS TAKE on Perry’s withdrawal.
