Romney, a Man of Class

Rick Santorum had suspended his campaign so he could be in the hospital with his sick child. Out of respect of that, the Romney campaign suspended an anti-Santorum ad set to run in Pennsylvania.

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign is pulling its negative ads in Pennsylvania as Rick Santorum took Monday off from campaigning to spend the day with his young daughter, who is in the hospital.

“We have done this out of deference to Sen. Santorum’s decision to suspend his campaign for personal family reasons,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an email.

Mr. Santorum’s three-year-old daughter Bella, who has a genetic condition, was hospitalized Friday.

The negative spot has been pulled until further notice, Romney aides said Monday morning. Mr. Santorum’s campaign has said the candidate plans to return to the campaign trail Tuesday.

Referencing Mr. Santorum’s 2006 defeat at the hands of Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, the negative ad asks Pennsylvania voters, “We fired him as senator. Why promote him to president?”

Good for Mr. Romney, and may little Bella Santorum get better real soon.
