With some 2012 presidential aspirants considering dropping out after the New Hampshire and Iowa caucuses, one hopeful is just now throwing his hat into the ring.

Stephen Colbert announced his bid for "candidacy for the president of the United States of South Carolina" on Thursday's The Colbert Report, the satirical Comedy Central news show on which he poses as a conservative political pundit.

Colbert, 47, is polling at 5 percent in his home state, ahead of longstanding candidate Jon Huntsman.

The TV host's previous attempt to get on the ballot in South Carolina, for the 2008 election, was blocked by Democratic Party officials.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who trailed Arizona Sen. John McCain on Super Tuesday, will suspend his presidential campaign, he announced Thursday.

"This isn't an easy decision. I hate to lose," Romney said during a midday speech in Washington, D.C. He said he was withdrawing to bolster Republican chances against Democratic candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Romney picked up 270 delegates in races this week, to McCain's 680. In addition, supporters of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee helped to erode a large portion of Romney's conservative base.
