What’s Mandarin for “I’m dropping out”? We’ll probably find out tomorrow:

Jon Huntsman will drop out of the Republican presidential race on Monday, a campaign spokesman told ABC News.

Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller said the former ambassador to China was “proud of the race that he ran” but “did not want to stand in the way” of rival Mitt Romney, the current front-runner for the nomination.

Huntsman plans to endorse Romney at an 11 a.m. press conference Monday in Myrtle Beach.

Things were looking beyond grim for Huntsman in South Carolina and Florida while Newt’s been closing the gap somewhat on Romney. So, if you’re Romney, why not promise Huntsman a China ambassadorship (yet again) or maybe a post as Harley Czar in order to get his five percent and stretch the margin a little?

The editorial board of the South Carolina paper The State would have liked to have had this information before they published their Huntsman endorsement this morning.
