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.

I’m all for Newt when my turn finally comes to vote in June, but this illustrates the disorganization of his campaign that allowed RINO Romney to railroad him.
Manmade Global Warming Newt vs. “not quite a communist Romney”... How quaint....
You really need to get a grip... and stop posting your Newt Hate around. Santorum QUIT - so did the others. Too bad they don’t have the fortitude, courage and sheer guts Newt does, but badmouthing Gingrich wont’ make cowardly people brave..
BTW, Sheldon Adelson’s wife gave over 5 mil to Newt’s campaign, late last month, and Winning our Future, now has 5.8 mil on hand.
SO... either get your facts straight, stop posting lies about Newt, or get over it.
Why don’t you just go support Romney - who even knows whether you did from the start?
Uh, this is a typical Romney trick. He did it before in Nevada: call a LOCAL news outlet, give them what they think is a scoop, then a national outlet picks it up and reports on it. Until finally someone gets around to contacting the campaign... ABC news and "people close to the Gingrich campaign". How can you blame Newt for the reptilian media and romney campaign working in concert?
What Gingrich says, does, thinks, where he appears, what he plans are all irrelevant. After his clobbering in Florida he should have quit. It was evident that he had baggage that would sink a fleet of cruise liners and a gender gap that would be oceans apart. His permanent moon-based colonies within eight years and $2.50 gas/gallon in two years was an agenda laced with kood-aid. Santorum was the obvious choice with 11 state wins, a super one day trifecta, and all on a shoe string budget. He came within a whisker of 3% of beating Romney in MI and within less than 1% in OH. Had Gingrich withdrawn, Santorum would have beaten Romney and we’d be on a different trajectory today. Now that Romney is the presumptive nominee, the realistic view is to mitigate the damage and make sure that Romney hews to the conservative agenda should he be the nominee. This is what Mark levin and Rush hope for as well. Indeed, Gingrich himself has said that Romney will be the “likely nominee” and he will enthusiastically support the party nominee. Forget Gingrich. If we are to take stock of the real world he’s now utterly irrelevant. The only question is to make sure we have a strong VP. This is now the talk of the town, not Gingrich.
Who gives a frack what the “town” is talking about? The ONLY way to get someone decent in the White House now is to make Gingrich surge in the next 19 states so that Romney doesn’t get 1,144 delegates and it goes to a convention vote. Even Romney knows there’s a good chance this will happen since he was begging RNC super delegates to sign “loyalty pledges” on Friday that would cover MULTIPLE ballots at the convention. In a floor fight, even your beloved Saintorum has another chance to get on the ticket.
SOUR GRAPES AND WISHFUL THINKING. NEWT GINGRICH WOULD HAVE WON HAD SANTORUM DROPPED OUT AFTER FLORDIA. SO THERE.
For crying out, some of these Santorum folk have venom and idiocy running through their veins. Until he ran in those Beauty contents he was dead in the races, and then he dropped out before he was about to lose his home state. Sheeesh. Talk about clearing the slate for Romney. His precious Bella was also hospitalized during FL.
You’re preaching to the choir sister. I have no idea what’s going on in some of their heads.
Can anyone tell me where to go to determine which delegates I need to vote for to benefit Gingrich (ditch Romney) in the Pennsylvania primary, Congressional District 13?
Since PA is not winner take all, and the popular vote is mostly just show, I may not be undisenfranchised.
Here's a list I've started of how to support Newt.
1: Donate to Newt's Campaign.
2: Talk to as many republicans as you can about the DISASTER the GOPe has become and how NEWT can change the direction of the country.
3: If you claim to be a conservative, uphold some principle and stop voting for these rino clowns. The "Lessor Of Two Evils" excuse just is not valid anymore! things have changed!
Newt can be educated about global warming. You can’t fix Romney.
Post Helms, NC is a tough nut to crack for a conservative.
BEcause nobody does, and you could better spend your time getting concentrated rehabilitative psychological help... Think about it..
BACK TO IGNORE LIST, YOU.
I want that dang on sign!
right click on “save picture as”. From there I think you can print it.
We have around 15,000 calls that need to be made to Delaware before Tuesday’s primary. If we can get Champions for Newt who will make as many calls as they can between Friday and Monday, or Tuesday, we can do it!
As much as the political and media establishment would like to declare this race over and coronate Mitt Romney as our inevitable nominee, it just isnt the case.
Weve had great crowds with lots of enthusiasm, and a number of key elected officials have endorsed our campaign in recent days. We truly believe that we have a real opportunity to win there, but we need your help.
This campaign couldnt have survived through the various ups and downs without the passionate support of people like you. And now its time to put that passion to work again.
We just launched a new phone from home system at phone.newt.org and theres plenty of households in Delaware that could use a call from you.
Were trying to make as many calls as we can into Delaware over the next few days to identify Newt supporters, to persuade undecided voters, and turn them out to the polls on Tuesday.
Our new system is very easy to use and your help over the next few days is absolutely vital.
So please take a moment today to visit phone.newt.org and make as many phone calls as you can.
With your help, we can turn the conventional wisdom on its head, and force the political and media establishment to acknowledge that this race is not over.
GOT PHONE? Make calls into DE this weekend for Newt:

Thanks just the same ;-)
I have not officially suspended my campaign for Supreme Galactic Emperor either.
Can’t argue with that! I just wish Newt would actually admit where he REALLY stands on AGW - he has expressed remorse for his “couch time” with Pelozi, yet has SINCE THAT supposed remorse/repentance, further written and spoken as a believer in AGW. I fear he is playing both sides of the coin (imagine that - a politician playing both teams for votes).
But it really is unacceptable for him to in ANY WAY continue to promote the fraud that is AGW.
Mr. Speaker, we’re right here with you sir. The fight goes on!
Newt isn’t perfect, however, he has a demonstrated record of conservative politics. He also has some goofs and bouts with liberal ideas such as GW that we can steer, educate or correct. Romney and Obama are birds of a feather. In fact, Romney has even said he is not a Republican or conservative, he simply registered Republican to get elected.
And I will stand with Newt until Newt stands down.
Romney is on the mission to be President.. Newt is on a mission to save our Country! I’m with NEWT!
Win or lose can you imagine a Newt speech at the RNC in Tampa? That will be the best speech of OUR lifetime!!!
I have been critical about his wife's luxuries, but Newt KNOWS the issues, has the ability to address the issues! And can produce results!!!
That is the problem with Romney. He's so damn bland it's sad, one of the debates it looked like he was a normal person but Barry is so damn slick.
I'm going to have to post the story on my profile page because everyone asks about it but I met Zero in 2005 at a GWB private event. Spoke to him for 10 minutes, got his auto, and I told him to his face I did not vote for him for Senate (he won with 70%+ of the vote) he gave me same hope and change garbage that sold the lemmings in 08.
Back when I met zero I called my mom (she passed in 08 before zero won) and told her I met the next president and he is pure evil. I have the ticket and auto as proof hehe!
Your oppenent, Mitt Palpatine is a lying RINO.
I'm glad you're not suspending.
Thanks Steelfish for your “dose of reality” to the Newt dreamers.
Time of all of us to get up off our mother’s couches and get to work on damage control.
And you didn’t mention WI..but let’s all remember that Rick was AHEAD in the primary here..until Big Brother RNC stepped in and plopped Ryan and Mittens in a sandwich shop for an SNL “sub-gate”, causing gullible voters of my state to change their minds and cancel out Rick’s game changing potential victory.
$38,000-$44,000 of US Taxpayer’s just for one (1) day for Newt’s Secret Service agents
I wonder if they had that extree speschul Lincoln-Douglas-Tiffany’s Debate training in Columbia and Las Vegas?
Big Ideas - Big Solutions?
It was Newt who cleared the slate for Romney, Onyx, by gleaning votes from Santorum. And I don’t know what you mean about Bella but it sounds like that was some sort of derogatory comment, which I pray it is not, as that would be a low blow.
Santorum dropped out for lack of funds and because he was sabotaged by the RNC, who chose Mittens as their heir apparent long ago. Newt will drop out for the same reason as Rick. When the funds dry up, it’s over. Adelson kept Newt going longer than he would have.
Romney’s PACs raised millions and millions over seven years and he will likely be the nominee because he outspent and attacked his opponents without restraint.
Santorum gave him a run for his money and should be very proud of himself. His grassroots, low budget campaign, of which I was proudly a part, caused Romney and his minions to waste alot of time, money and effort..which is a good thing!
“Newt isnt perfect”
Newt has such a panoply of imperfections, flaws and betrayals, you can’t dismiss them with a simple pre-emptive admission like this. It’s the political equivalent of saying “Jeff Dahmer isn’t perfect, but.....some of his recipes are delicious!”
Newt never had any business running for President. Period.
“$38,000-$44,000 of US Taxpayers just for one (1) day for Newts Secret Service agents”
....Plus the cost of drinks & hookers.
Read the writing on the wall and stop wasting your time on Gingrich posts.
There's no such thing as bad advertising. ;)
All the way to Tampa, baybeee!
Just voted for Newt in NC early voting!
If he really keeps his promise and goes all the way to Tampa, I’ll send him another donation.
If he really keeps his promise and goes all the way to Tampa, I’ll send him another donation.
I may as well. I’ve already sent him two donations.
It’s Newt, regardless. I won’t vote for that scum sucking swine, Romney.

Newt needs to keep raising money. He is in debt.

A newt is an aquatic amphibian of the family Salamandridae ...
