Denver (AP) Republican party leaders in Colorado say they're disappointed that the state's overwhelming caucus choice for president has quit the race, but they're vowing to rally around a candidate who can win this November.

Mitt Romney suspended his campaign Thursday, two days after impressively defeating John McCain in Colorado on Super Tuesday. Romney suffered overwhelming losses across the country, just as the Centennial State showed its support.

Romney took nearly 60 percent of the vote of more than 56,000 Republicans who caucused in Colorado. McCain had 19 percent.

State GOP Chair Dick Wadhams says even though Colorado Republicans strongly supported Romney, they're going to be more interested in supporting a candidate that can win the general election.
