Newt Gingrich to Suspend Campaign; Endorse Romney
OK folks, you can cross Newt Gingrich off the list. From FOX News:
Newt Gingrich plans to formally leave the Republican presidential race next Tuesday, senior campaign aides told Fox News.
The former House speaker will “more than likely” endorse Mitt Romney when he makes his announcement to either suspend or end the campaign, a source said.
The decision comes after Gingrich huddled with senior advisers following the five primaries Romney swept on Tuesday night. Romney’s victories made it virtually impossible for Gingrich to secure the 1,144 delegates needed for the Republican nomination.
This leaves Ron Paul as the only active challenger to Miit Romney. I know he and his supporters like to talk about a “delegate strategy” and other things, but that ain’t happening.
