Posted on 02/01/2012 4:12:38 PM PST by TBBT
LAS VEGAS -- An advisor to Donald Trump says he will make a major announcement in Las Vegas tomorrow. Sources tell the 8 News NOW I-Team Trump will endorse Newt Gingrich.
According to Trump advisor Michael Cohen, "Donald J. Trump will be making a major announcement tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. at Trump International Hotel & Tower, Las Vegas, Nevada... The announcement will pertain to the Presidential race."
Gingrich enters the Nevada Caucus after getting beat by Mitt Romney in Florida. He has spent the day in campaigning in Reno.

I wish the Donald would just stay out of GOP politics.
I’m sincerely fighting back a deep-seated streak of cynicism, but frankly, if Mitt is the candidate, why should I give a @!$# if Trump jumps in or not?
A bomb-tosser endorsing another bomb-tosser.........big duh.
The endorsements are strategically timed, IMO. I bet mama grizzly goes for a full on endorsement & stumping prior to super Tues
If enough voters can be rounded up to beat Obama in the Fall, then they must first have a candidate who can articulate conservative principles in a manner that says to each citizen, "You have a Creator-endowed right to life, liberty, and the property you work for and earn as you freely pursue happiness. That's the most valuable thing your elected officials can protect for you. Remember, whatever they "take" from someone else to give to you, they can then "take" from you to give to their next target audience. Don't ever forget that. Go study your Declaration of Independence and Constitution and the writings and speeches of men who framed them. Those two documents are the tools by which you should measure us, and the limits to which you should hold us accountable to you."
If a nominee cannot help to educate and inform citizens as a means of contrasting Obama's ideology with the ideas of liberty on which our nation was founded, then he will not likely beat Obama.
Charles Krauthammer spoke again on the FoxReport tonight about Romney's inability to explain conservative ideas. He is correct, and that kind of weakness is not to be remedied by coaches or advisors.
There have been many business leaders over the past 3 or 4 decades who have become wealthy in the free enterprise system, have become aware of government intrusion and destruction of that system, and have spent millions of dollars and years of their lives working on behalf of preserving its principles.
Romney does not appear to be one of those. Benefitting from the system, without devoting time to helping conserve the principles underlying it, does not qualify one to be the leader of the Republic.
What if THE DONALD is considering jumping on the ticket with Newt,
I do realize the ego of Trump is HUGE however New has the Washington
know how and Trump has the business know how China, India, ect.
The state this country is in right now WHY NOT??? Most of all Trump
has money and people with money. GO NEWT!!!!!!!
Pay attention America, everybody who speaks the truth is lining up behind NOOT NOOT!!
Pray for AMerica
He does. Lots and lots of money, something Newt's campaign needs very badly right now to survive the Mittwits' attacks all the way to the convention.
“He should have run as a Republican then, instead of splitting off as a 3rd party spoiler.”
I disagree. If mitt and obama are the candidates, we need a third party for those of us who will not vote for the two of them...
I agree. Unfortunately, many here making stupid comments regarding Trump know nothing about the man and how he started with nothing to become a billionaire. As for ego, yeah, he's got one. How many here would back another loser like Bob Dole?
I agree. Unfortunately, many of the clueless get their info from watching silly game shows like Trump's. He's one tough businessman who doesn't take any crap from anyone. That's a perk of being independently wealthy. Hopefully, he'll dump $40-50 million into Gingrich's campaign.
For the Lord gives His Angels charge over Newt to keep him in all his ways, and the Angels bear Newt up in their arms, lest Newt dash his foot against a stone.
Why would anyone except the clerks in bankruptcy court gives a rat’s tail for who Trump endorses?
Does anyone have a list of the people who have endorsed Newt? I know of the following.
Sarah Palin (kind of)
The Donald (if it really happens)
Former Congressman Bob Livingston (R-LA)
Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ)
Gov. Rick Perry (TX)
Gov. Nathan Deal (GA)
Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA)
Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)
Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA)
Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA)
Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX)
Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX)

In short, an effective communicator offering solutions to real problems facing US business.
The cultist from KOLOB has about as good a shot as Al Sharpton at becoming POTUS.
FUMR, and your entire military service avoiding for the last 150 years family.
I would vote for trump over Romney.
Not sure an endorsement warrants a major announcement. Perhaps he turned up something in his search for Obama’s birth certificate.
The Donald is in the same boat as all of us on knowing who is going to get the nomination. He may have a feeling, but nothing more.
Its possible Mutt’s FU mis-speak about Po Folks could be the campaign killer moment. You can bet yo booty nobama’s bunch will play THAT clip a million times.
Vegas and Reno are the majority of voters in NV, doubt many are Mormon.

Think again. Lots of LDS both in Vegas and Reno, just ask Fast Coyote.
That’s right and I just found out the place I have to caucus Saturday, in Henderson, is a huge Mormon area :(
This is awesome news!!! I would gladly vote for Trump as a 3rd party candidate if Romney is our canidate. TAKE THAT.....RINO Party!!!
of course he was just praising romney the other day....but its cute watching the people jump over one tv station
I’ll settle for Bachmann ....
Why didn’t he do this before the Florida primary?
I think he was talking Michelle Pfeiffer; he’s kind of a cougar hound dog.
“Does anyone have a list of the people who have endorsed Newt?”
Here’s a long list of Gingrich endorsements. To the right of “List of Newt Gingrich endorsements,” you have to click on the “show” command to view the list:
“Well if he does, he has a bigger pair than some of our so called conservative leaders (Radio Pundits).”
I’ve been depressed about this too, The Cajun. Listening to Hannity and Rush today. Hannity praising Romney for his win.
Rush reminding us that Bam is the enemy. Wussy and a duh!
A terrible day after having two GOP “leaders” in my face for two days calling me a traitor for taking a stand against Romney.
Well lo and behold. I tune in to the ONLY real Conservative talk show host..who is fearless to boot:Mark Levin...
And he is ripping , ripping Romney,”What exactly was his Conservative message that got him so many votes in Fla?” Romney Care and Ann Coulter. It is so refreshing. I highly rec. that you Freepers listen to his first hour today.
It’s free on Marklevinshow.com
He’s still lambasting Ann...taking apart her column “Three Cheers for Romneycare” line by line. What a dufus to have written that...Does she think it’s going to help her buddy?
GO Mark and you’re welcome here in FR anytime!
Looking forward to the second hour. We have a radio talk show host ally, peeps..and it’s Mark.
Get off the phone ya big dope!!!
Whatever, I will vote whoever wins the GOP nomination, even if it is somebody I dislike. Just think of more of Eric Holder and the lawsuits against the states. None of the 4 GOP candidates would ever go that far. Only secret Obama supporters here would try to convince us to go 3rd party.
Gingrich-Trump ticket? I like it. Bet China would take notice.
TWEET : DONALD J.TRUMP @realDonaldTrump
“I will be making a major announcement tomorrow (Thursday, February 2) at 12:30 pm at Trump International Hotel & Tower, Las Vegas, Nevada. I will be arriving this evening at approximately 11:30 pm. The announcement will pertain to the Presidential race. All media welcome.”

I'm no Trump fan. I would have thought Trump would be more likely to endorse Romney.
However, Josh Painter is absolutely right — Gingrich needs money, he needs money, both quickly to turn the campaign around and for the long term to carry the fight to the convention. If you're going up against a self-funded multimillionare candidate, having another multimillionare backing you is a huge benefit.
Gingrich deserves congratulations if this report proves to be true.
“Remember that the Celebrity Apprentice appears on NBC starting February 19th.”
That is spot on. Trump cares about his business first and foremost. Being a true conservative is a distant second.
Actually, it could be worth a lot. Trump is connected to all kinds of big money people, many of who would normally support the D candidate but who are disappointed in Obama. Trump might pull together the funding syndicate Newt will need to stave off Romney and then Obama. Money is the only serious advantage Romney has enjoyed, Trump theoretically could neutralize that. Or Newtralize, as it were.
The cool thing is even if Newt loses, this leaves Trump open to a third party run without having to contradict himself. Which means either way we should be able to keep Mitt out of the White House and dash the little music man’s hopes on some sharp rocks. Now if he picks Newt as V.P., his ticket might even have a chance to win.
WTF is going on?
OK I clicked the link on drudge, even though he has Mitt’s pic beside Trump with the headline. You click the article and it is the one about endorsing newt... <p.Drudge is such a slime!
Now you know why so many are boycotting Drudge. He’s been in the tank for Romney for YEARS, since the last primary. The guy has thrown his conservative credibility out the window almost as much as Coulter.
At any rate, I remember Mitt refused to attend Trump’s cancelled debate in December. I’m sure that didn’t help sway Trump’s endorsement.
It sure is cool that Newt has the endorsement of so many dynamic, interesting, creative, successful people while Mitt garners the endorsement largely of garden variety political hacks.
LOL I have been boycotting him for a few years myself, but after reading that blog i had to look..LOL
If Trump endorses Newt, it isn't so much about getting him votes as it is, Trump be able to strong arm his ultra wealthy contacts, that possibly owe him, to donate too. An endorsement like Trump brings in money, and hopefully votes to follow.
