He did no such thing. Rick is running a campaign to win which is something Newt should consider if he is to be considered viable against Milt. Also, here we go again with the Newt people calling for the only guy in the race challenging Milt in any significant way to drop out. Wasn't it Newt that was pushing this "drop out scenario" since SC?
Gingrich said it is clear I am the leading conservative, and he hopes the conservative vote can be consolidated in the weeks ahead. When asked if he was calling on Santorum, he simply repeated his hope the conservative vote can be consolidated.
A Gingrich spokesman confirmed Wednesday that there's been no pressure from Santorum's camp to leave the race.
That's right. Rick isn't calling for anyone to drop out. He is instead getting in these state contests to win. How has Newt improved his delegate standing since the SC win?
“How has Newt improved his delegate standing since South Carolina?”
THAT is what Newt is about to demonstrate. His Georgia win will do things to asuage your delegate counting concerns, and if he even runs second, he is seen as the Phoenix rising, which is a threat to sinking Santorum.
How many committed delegates are in Georgia alone? There you go. Newt is back.
Rick, by rights, you’re the one who should leave. You’re the one who savaged a friend and ally.
Reply: “He did no such thing.”
Lazlo, I know you support Rick, and that’s fine. But, here, I only assert the facts.
After Fla, Rick went out to Co, Mo, and Mn- and ran a negative ad against Newt where Newt was pictured with Obama- and decried as the identical “insider”. He also said on the campaign- “the only woman I sit on a couch with is my wife”.
Now, those are facts— Newt, on the other hand, did not run 1 negative ad against Rick- and he only raises distinctions wt Rick as to policy- not personal.
You support Rick; ok— but let’s not try to re-write history.
I found the title on this article rather odd. The guy who wrote the article is Steve Peoples from AP.
So now I know why.
