Gingrich North Carolina Stops Called Off, Then On Again
ABC News ^ | 4-21-12 | Dover

Posted on 04/20/2012 6:32:53 PM PDT by VinL

The Newt Gingrich campaign found itself in a state of confusion Friday night when reports surfaced that Gingrich would cancel all of his stops in North Carolina next week, fueling suggestions that Gingrich would be suspending his campaign. But the campaign says nothing is happening.

Two people close to the Gingrich campaign told ABC News they were contacted and told all of Gingrich’s North Carolina stops had been canceled, although R.C. Hammond, communications director for the campaign, said there was a “communication glitch.”

“There was confusion, but we will maintain our North Carolina schedule next week,” Hammond said.

One person close to the campaign said the stops were certainly canceled, then resumed after news reports left looming suspicion, even among his own staff, that Gingrich was suspending his campaign.

On Friday, the vice chairman of the North Carolina Republican party told the Shelby Star that he was contacted and told a stop a tavern in Kings Mountain, N.C. was canceled. (edit)

Hammond denied the stops were resumed purely to extinguish speculation Gingrich was dropping out.

“The North Carolina guys were instructed that the schedule was going to be redone so they called and told people, now they’ve got to call and tell them it’s back on,” Hammond said.

Gingrich will campaign in Delaware Saturday and will also campaign there Monday in a final push to pick up delegates. Hammond said Gingrich will not be dropping out any time soon, and certainly not before Tuesday.

Newt never canceled in the first place.

I smell Romney corruption all over this. Romney is a crazed power hungry egomaniac. He is just as dangerous as Obama.

GO NEWT!

I usually allow the mods to shift it— if they think it’s warranted.

FYI, just posted a new article on campaign status.

There may come the day that Newt drops— but it’s not today.

Keep the faith.

Agree! The one in breaking news quotes an anonymous source. This report, which corrects the other one, actually has real names attached to it. The other one, which has now been refuted directly by Newt's campaign, should be moved out of breaking news.

The romney camp tried this before, remember? When Newt had scheduled a press conference in Nevada? They called local Nevada TV stations saying Newt getting ready to bow out...

And instead, Newt used the increased media interest to get more coverage for his news conference...

Two people close to the Gingrich campaign told ABC News

Now there's a confidence inspiring combination, people close to the Gingrich campaign and ABC News, who were the sources the pizza delivery guy who brought lunch to RC and the others? Doesn't the campaign - and the campaign only - control, schedule and cancel events - exclusively? Why would ABC even publish reports from people close to the campaign, instead of checking with THE CAMPAIGN? Maybe because they wanted the headline out there on the eve of Delaware to discourage voters? Maybe?

When Newt's campaign says it, believe it..

This is probably because Newt is moving up in DE... and they're scared... they never killed Newt off in FL though they tried...

 

Newt terminator
                                                                 NEWT GINGRICH.

HE'LL MAKE JOHN BOEHNER CRY LIKE A BABY GIRL.

Newt was AWESOME

I got a $50 parking ticket in order to see him, and it was worth it

Romney looks like a used car salesman to me and I can only picture his pathetic debates with Obama: “I betcha the economy is worse now than when you were elected... c’mon you wanna bet?

Newt just make SO MUCH SENSE When you hear him talk and he made it a point (to fantastic applause) that he DID balance the federal budget

http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/20/gingrich-wont-drop-race-or-costly-secret-service-protection/

There is no way for him to win.It is ridiculous and if this would be Perry,Bachmann,Santorum wasting secret service money; imagine the complaints of those here that dissed and dismissed conservative candidates for RINO Newt just so they could complain about RINO Romney.There were plenty of good,pro-life candidates dismissed; so save the long winded speeches about abortion Romney.

Wow....glad that was cleared up...NEwt’s still in but this was from ABC so I didn’t put much weight in it. Anymore ya gotta see where it’s coming from because there’s so much propaganda going on to get Newt to yield.

They aren’t just going to cut him off at the knees, they’re going for the whole leg now! If there’s going to be a convention he’ll likely be pulling himself over the finish line by the time they’re through with their attacks. Hoping some more cash might get him over......I’ve not given up yet!

Go Newt Go! We’re still ‘With’ you!!!!!

Wouldn't surprise me to find out that the Romney people are engaging in a last ditch disinformation campaign. Hell... I'd like to know how they "Women for Romney" got my private cell phone number. They've been texting me trying to get me to vote for romney. I've contacted my phone service provider and told them that I am being spammed by romney's campaign and I want to know how they got my number. There is some serious shenanigans taking place and it's pissing me off. I certainly don't want to support a scumbag that will violate my personal space by making unsolicited phone calls and sending unsolicited text messages to me. If the romney campaign doesn't have enough integrity to not use illegal methods to acquire people's private phone numbers I don't want to support them. If they can't keep a handle on their super pacs and the bonehead shills they have I don't want to support them. And if they will stop at nothing to harass a hard working simple man like me there isn't a doubt in my mind they're trying to sabotage Newt's campaign.

We cannot let this piece of crap get away with his criminal behavior.

JMHO
