WASHINGTON (AP) - The Associated Press has learned that Mitt Romney will suspend his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

The move effectively cedes the GOP nomination to John McCain.

Romney is preparing to tell the Conservative Political Action Committee that if he continues with his campaign all the way to the convention, it would delay the launch of a national campaign, and make it more likely for Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Obama to win.

Romney, in his prepared remarks, says it wasn't an easy decision. But he says, "I feel I must now stand aside, for our party and for our country."
