Gingrich to Hold Post-Caucus Press Conference

Instead of the traditional election night party, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will hold a press conference after the Nevada Caucus on Saturday, raising new speculation about his future in the race. (snip)

I will never vote for Romney.
Oh no. Please no.
Newt probably won’t waste his time in caucus states, as that requires organization on the ground.
That's what I'm thinking, although I'm puzzled as to how he might frame that.
Probably will announce that Trump is fired
Speaker Gingrich will hold a press conference with Sarah Palin at his side, and declare he knows the Republican Party well enough to know it is corrupt, and irretrievable.
With that, he announces he’s forming an independent run with Sarah Palin as his running mate, under the banner of the “Tea Party”.
(gotta start a real party somewhere).
He will cease all GOP campaign activities, and the new Party will begin national campaign organizing in Arizona.
“I LIKE IT!!!”....And hello fellow Dave. lol
Well, if we’re doomed to another zero election victory this November, we may as well have fun in our handbasket express to hell.
Who says Gingrich / Palin wouldn’t win.
I sure as heck would vote for them.
Bet you would too. And Trump wouldn’t be able to mess things up. He chose sides already. Sorry Donald, you’re fired.
WE need to shake this up even more, with a Brokered Convention. I would also love to see a third party with Newt and Sarah.
The establishment will still pimp Romney, and we will more than likely lose, but can you imagine Newt in the place of Ross Perot? If it were Newt, we may have won it in this new world that is the opposite of ‘92.
If Newt and Sarah get in early enough, the money will flow their way and Romney will be under pressure for once. And when Romney is under pressure, he comes apart like wet toilet paper.
That would be a winner!!!
Worst case scenario; Gingrich gets out of the race and endorses Santorum. Believe it or not, that could end up being a best case scenario. I like Newt and he’s been my first choice. I’ve been a bit ticked off at Santorum for running ads against Newt recently. All that aside, I would be happy to see Santorum run against Romney head to head.
I’ll fight to defeat Romney in this primary. But if he wins the nomination, he’s got my vote and probably even my door to door efforts. Obama is doing terrible things to the country; not just the economy. He’s infringing on religious freedom, depleting the military, and his supreme court nominations will be automatic liberals who don’t follow the constitution.
I understand the many reason to never support Romney, but will the country in better shape in 2016 after a 2nd Obama term, or 2020 after a 2nd Romney term? I am confident that at the end of a 2nd Romney term, life in American could be better than it is today. I’m confident that at the end of a 2nd Obama term, life in America will be worse than it is today. If Romney is voted out in 2016; life in America will still be better than it would be at the end of a 2nd Obama term. This is only if Romney gets the nomination, of course.
Should we coelesce behind Romney today? NO WAY! If he wins the nomination, take your time to get on board, but by all means, get on board.
Stage Management Ping. Thanks DaveinOK54.
Oh, heck yeah, I’d vote for them.
But if Newt goes third-party, so does Paul, to independent or
If zero has 40% locked up, or even 35% there is no way Newt, Mittens or Paul can get a 36%. But like I said, if we’re going to lose to zero, may as well have fun doing it.
I would think you would need a bank full of money to run as an Independent. Newt does not have that kind of money.
Whatever it is, it’s gonna be BIG. Otherwise, why do it? He knows such an announcement would get major press coverage, hoping he was announcing that he was getting out. I’d be surprised if that’s the reason. Whatever it is it’s gonna be HUGH!!!!
If Romney becomes the nominee I write in for President and vote downline. No way will I ever cast a vote for Romney.
You like Sarah Palin now?
Santorum doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of beating Romney, much leas Obama.
His poll numbers are half or less than Newt’s, so why should Newt get out and endorse him? If anything, it should be the other way around. But unlike Rick Perry, Santorum’s a sullen little egomaniac who doesn’t have it in him to do the right thing.
He has a billionaire backer.
Flyover country has plenty of money.
Remember Christine O’Donnell’s massive campaign donations, which *poured* in almost overnight?
For a small seat, in a small state, which very few people have even been to? That one brave, perhaps imperfect but nevertheless heroic woman stood against the GOP “establishment”.
And was suddenly rolling in campaign donations.
Imagine that, multiplied by all the frustration out in real America.
That’s what I was thinking, that’s assuming it’s for real. Who knows for sure. The timing of this announcement is suspicious. Could be a ruse to cast doubt on the day of the vote.
(Hey back to ya NCDAVE)
What does he have in mind? I expect Nevada to go heavily for Romney, as he won in 2008, but the decision for a press conference has me perplexed.
Agreed. If Romney is the nominee, he will lose, regardless. So let him lose big. I will write in Sarah and vote for republicans on the rest of the ballot, and conservative for any ballot questions.
Some posters have suggested a "protest vote" to reelect the current resident of the white house. I would never do that, nor would I have anything but contempt for someone who did.
ROFLOL, yes if you add their negatives together it would exceed 60%, no where to go but up.
CNN, thank you for that statement. That is what I saw as an eyewitness to those events.
Christine O'Donnell brought down Mike Castle and Tom Ross, the former head of the DE GOP. Now there is a new power structure in place here, and we hope they will do the will of those that put them there.
Very stupid idea.
If we can’t win a majority, in the Republican Party, we will NEVER win a majority with the public at large.
Third Party ideas are egotistical stupidity.
That's absolutely true since Gingrich is ahead of Santorum.
Ill fight to defeat Romney in this primary. But if he wins the nomination, hes got my vote and probably even my door to door efforts.
Why would you vote for a Massachusetts liberal that has the same track record as Obama?
There are no events on Newt.org planned for today. does not look good. Newt looked tired last night at the prayer conference when he walked to the podium. It was the same walk he had when he spoke at the Florida Rally where Cain endorsed him. He knew Florida was lost then and I think he knows his campaign cannot continue against the negative ads. Santorum is hitting him hard too.
I will still vote for Newt in November - I will just write his name in. I will never vote for Romney.
But I don’t see a brokered convention helping conservatives as that’s exactly what the elites want.
Just how bad was Rick Santorums 2006 reelection loss? Really bad.
Santorum has proved one thing ..... He's a loser.
I think maybe you were out of the country in 2008?
We tried egotistical stupidity already. How’d that president McCain thing work out?
In hindsight, I wish we’d started a third party then!
There was an article here yesterday that quoted Santorum as saying God called him to run for President. Someone who talks like that is NEVER going to quit.
I feel sick, I hope he isn’t throwing in the towel. I was counting on him...
Santorum won, more than once, in a Democrat State.
Santorum lost his last race during an anti-Bush wave election. Coattails matter.
Santorum was never my first choice, but your attacks against him are not fair.
Romney will be worse than Obama in holding Republican seats in Congress.
Romney is better than Obama
On Defense Policy
So just what is Romney’s policy on Israel ???
A 2008 debate
Mr Romney what would you do if we were attacked ???
Consult my attorneys...
“We cant send them all back”
“We must find a path to citizenship”
Quite frankly, you don't know that. No one does.
We don't know what he is better than, because what he says and what he does are two different things.
From his term as MA governor,we know he will govern as a liberal and destroy the GOP in the process.
Romney will say whatever it takes to be elected.
What if the newly forming Gingrich / Palin Tea Party rebellion were able to score Ron Paul, with some deal?
Imagine Gingrich / Palin independent, with Ron Paul as their publicly declared Fed Chairman.
Even Obama would freak.
Mitt has offered Newt the # 2 position, they both realize that it’s the only way to unseat the current regime, they will work together to ensure that outcome and save our nation from the utter disaster that Barry would do to us if he had four more years.
Romney appointed 2 judges in Massachusetts that were members of homosexual rights groups. Voila! Homosexual "marriage" via the courts in Mass. Think SCOTUS. You want him picking nominees? CONSERVATIVES do not.
I think Palin would accept a supporting role, in forming an actual pro-America alternative to the ossified mess the GOP has become.
Palin going Rogue, and changing history?
