I wonder if this has to do with the terrible health troubles his daughter has had lately?

It might be because of his daughter, and I don't blame him one bit for dropping out!

Who picks up his delegates??

If he “suspends” his campaign, he can continue to raise money to retire his debt, plus likely hold on to his candidates so as to be a power broker at the GOP-e / RINO convention.

Seems he is simply suspending to spend a few more days with Bella, not ceding the race, according to the other thread.

If you haven’t got the memo. Newt is all in on Milt being the nominee. All you have to do is watch his pitiful appearances on the Sunday morning shows Easter to see him kissing Milts @$$.

He has to suspend in order to continue to get money to pay off campaign expenses. Can’t quit, has to suspend.

PA and TX voters can still vote for Newt.

I thought we were in this till Tampa.

GO Newt.

Oh wow. Then Newt can kiss my ***. We’re doomed - latest polls have Bathhouse Barry leading Milf Romney (Obama Lite) by a significant margin.

William F. Buckley said the best way to ensure the repeal of a bad law is to insist on its enforcement. Maybe another four years of Zero the Marxist destroying this country finally will wake up Americans to the fact we need a real conservative as POTUS.

Too bad you will not get the chance to vote for President in the primary.

I still hope Texas changes to winner-take-all for 2016 and beyond. Why are conservative states like Texas usually proportional and liberal states like New York and Illinois winner-take-all?. No wonder moderates have been the nominees in 2008 and now in 2012.

Sad to see him go, I think some more money and less manipulation by the GOP E would have changed a lot of things for this race.

Well, the GOPe and the RINO’s own this now. They did everything they could to pimp this loser Milt. It is all on them now. If Milt comes up a loser in Nov, there will be a bloodbath in the GOP and the first head Conservatives will be gunning for is Karl Rove. His name will be mud and hopefully it will destroy the party so that the Tea Party and Conservatives can consolidate something more reflective of a viable party.

All these dope swear this guy is the only one who can win in Nov and they all have it on the record. As Rush just said...There are no more excuses from the RINO wing.

If this news doesn’t interest you

It interested me the first time I read it.

Then I was aware of it. Subsequent readings, therefor, did not interest me.

Do you need to be told things eight times before you grasp the meaning?

It takes more than a minute to cut and paste all of the fields that FR has on the form to post a thread. All the posters were cutting and pasting at the same time.

I’m not bothered by it at all. The mods will sort it out.

That was my immediate thought. If he is dropping out before Pennsylvania, his daughter must be sicker than we thought.

If you took the time to notice, all the threads came in within a 4 minute period. Most of us were trying to confirm before we posted. It happens here all the time when news breaks.

Don’t panic though. By tomorrow, these threads will have disappeared into the either of forgotten FR threads and you can comfortably get back to hectoring blog pimps and dopes posting incoherent vanities.

Rick announces he will suspend his campaign, that this Presidential race is OVER for him.

Newt is now,and still, the strongest horse in this race.

Now, conservatives, are you going to fight for Newt, or are you just going to just sit there and complain about Romney being the inevitable nominee?

Newt is going to Tampa, and I aim to help him get there.

It is a slim chance. but there is still a chance to fight Willard.

Whatever his reasoning, the symbolism of the place it is to take place could not in itself speak more signification in regard to theses united States.

There the tide turned against self-government 150 years ago. There the fate of freedom was lost to the false promises of an evil empire. There it was decided that men would be made subjects to a central government, rather than governments subject to the consent of men.

His daughter is three years old and was born with a usually fatal condition.

I doubt he would have entered the presidential stakes at all if he thought he could not cope with her health issues and run the country as well.

Hope Bella beats the odds and grows up to enjoy her life.

More likely he is dropping out because of his poor showing in the primaries.

I think a lot of conservatives will demand some money before doing grassroots work for Romney. The RINO East Coast PR Firms that lost the McCain Election shouldn’t get all the money since it was grassroots that won the 2010 elections.

I want to say a huge “thank you” to Lazlo in PA and Antoninus, who maintained the Santorum for President Ping List, and all my fellow steadfast Santorum supporters, for all your incredible posts and patriotic spirit. It was an honor to serve the cause with you. It was so great to get to know you wonderful people, and share a common vision - Rick’s vision, the Founder’s vision, Reagan’s vision - with each other.

Love to all, and let’s keep fighting for life, liberty, and small government controlled by We The People.

Thank you for running the Santorum ping list.

This is obviously awful news for many of us.

Unless somebody can figure out how to get Newt Gingrich to the point that he wins three more states to meet the five-state threshold to put his name into nomination, this primary is over.

Tomorrow's another day. Let's hope we have better news from the Gingrich campaign soon. Is there a Gingrich ping list?
