    Rick Santorum’s 3-year-old daughter, Bella, was released from the hospital Monday night, and the presidential candidate canceled a few campaign events on Tuesday to spend time with her. In a statement the campaign said Santorum would not be attending events in Bedford and Carlisle, Pa., but had added an unspecified event in Gettysburg, Pa. Bella has Trisomy 18, a rare genetic disorder whose sufferers often do not live longer than a week. Santorum had been planning on focusing all his campaign efforts on Pennsylvania, his home state, where polls have shown him trailing Mitt Romney.
