Another Republican operative said he had spoken with an old friend of Gingrich's in the South who had been planning a fundraiser for the campaign.
There were 18 co-chairs for the event until Gingrich's appearance on "Meet the Press" Sunday, where he labeled Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) proposed budget "radical" and "right-wing social engineering."
"He said like 13 of them dropped off within 24 hours of 'Meet the Press,'"

He is a global warming nut, support farm subsidies (pandering Iowa) and opposes spending cuts. Oh, and he was cheating his wife.
Strong platform perhaps, but wrong party.
Newt needs to climb back under his rock
hubris [ˈhjuːbrɪs], hybris
1. pride or arrogance
2. (Literary & Literary Critical Terms) (in Greek tragedy) an excess of ambition, pride, etc., ultimately causing the transgressor's ruin. See Gingrich, Newt.
Indeed it would!
I watched a video of Newt, down in Mexico, speaking fluent spanish, promising the Mexicans at this particular gathering, immigration reform.
Woop...der it is. Done.
Since then, I've seen more evidence that Ol Newt's not what he appears to be. In fact, looks like he’za a big ol globalist pos.
Personally, I think all those who are running who have run and lost in the past should drop out now. NO more Newt’s, NO more Ronmey’s, NO more Paul’s, NO more Santorum’s and probably No Palins. We need a candidate that can fire up not only the Conservatives, but also the Independents. None of these folks can do that. I thought that Herman Cain and Gary Johnson were the clear winners from the SC debate.
“Prior to running for office, Gingrich had been Southern regional director for Nelson Rockefeller in 1968.” -Wiki
Without a doubt, Hannity will be the last Republican in the country to realize Newt’s campaign is finished — as it should be.
You might add “Dukakis in the tank!”
Just what would attract flies in the first place?
Newt on Greta was like he was reading from the wrong script. At the end of the show, when he invited her to come out to Iowa and see his huge adoring crowds, it reminded me of the scene where Zoolander takes the stage and begins his cocky victory speech, without listening to the announcer or realizing that he actually lost.
Greta’s poker face was great, but you could tell she was biting her tongue to keep from laughing. She clearly though he was being ridiculous, but she was as professional and polite as can be. Even hopeful that he’d grab one of the lifelines she threw him and try to pull himself out of the pit. Instead, all he threw out of the ditch was more dirt.
I’ve begged Newt to do the right thing, and stay out of this. People aren’t in the mood for establishment addicts.
if newton’s intellect were so keen, he would drop out of the race. what a putz.
Announce the Gingrich McCain ticket now. Don't wait Newt. Be Bold.
We should all be grateful that Gingrich revealed himself now and not after he sucked up valuable resources. Although, anyone that doesn’t know by now he’s a RINO is an idiot.
Oh, yeah, how could I have forgotten? There's probably a few more that came close to those three in destroying a campaign.
Especially these Republican donors who obviously have more money than sense!
