MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman will drop out of the White House race on Monday and endorse former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a senior Huntsman campaign official said on Sunday.

The official said Huntsman, a former Utah governor, was "proud of the race he ran."

Ultimately, he "didn't want to stand in the way of the person with the best chance to beat US President (Barack) Obama," the official told Reuters.

Huntsman has been lagging in opinion polls and finished third in last week's New Hampshire primary.
