Skip to comments.Gingrich North Carolina Stops Called Off, Then On Again
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 Gingrichs 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 theyve got to call and tell them its 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.

You should have posted this one in breaking.
HANG IN THERE, NEWT!
Yes! the breaking news shows Newt cancelled!
I hit abuse and posted this link in the complaint section. That thread is locked.
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
No conspiracy.Not Romney or anyones fault or leak.It was OFF then ON.
Gingrich Camp mired in 4.3 million Debt
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.
Why can it not be moved to Chat (or hell, whichever's closer) ??
