PELL CITY, Ala. Newt Gingrich says he isnt dropping out of the Republican presidential race.
Gingrich said during an Alabama campaign swing Wednesday that hes staying in because its impossible for a moderate Republican to be elected president in November. He was referring to front-runner Mitt Romney.
Gingrich also said rival Rick Santorum, whom Gingrich is battling to be the preferred conservative, is a creature of the establishment.
Top allies of Santorum have said Gingrich should drop out.

It's you who don't get it. So what is Santorum jackasses? Newt has answers which you seem unable to understand. So be it.
The mystery is how Santorum has been fighting for pro-abortion candidates all his life and gets left alone by the media and the GOP-e.
Heck, in 1996 Santorum was supporting the Presidential candidate that was running on kicking out the pro-life movement and getting pro-life out of the GOP platform entirely, even last election he was trying to get in a pro-abortion President.
Because most Catholics are not practicing Catholics, they are for abortion and far more liberal. So the fact they aren’t voting for him ain’t nothing to be proud of.
Rick’s practicing Catholic views are more acceptable to evangelicals.
The problem is this, just because you got absolution from the church does not mean you get absolution from the voters.
I myself think he and Calista are solid, but with Newt, history makes people worry about some bimbo dragged out by Allred and pimped by the media. It killed Cain and nobody knows yet if this could happen with Newt. What did Hillary have in those FBI files?
That is a reaction caused by Newt himself. People don’t know, but actions in the past can hurt a person.
It was the same when he was a Senator, Protestants and especially Evangelicals supported him, in 2006, but Catholics would not.
Thanks, duffee. I see a good Newt who is in love for the first time in his life. Yes, he can be arrogant and who isn’t, among those who think they can be president and dare to run?
You mean the same moderate state that rejected it’s favorite son, Al Gore for president?
What is bloody Thursday. I have seen it mentioned here from time to time and always wondered what it was, but this is the first time I am asking. Thanks Rita.
Tennessee is a southern state. Newt didnt even come in second, much less win.
Newt supporters this morning said that Tennessee has gotten too many Northern Yankees to be considered part of the South anymore.....And Oklahoma was never part of the South. lol. The way this primary is going, there won’t be a South. lol.
It could work either way. There would be advantages to having Santorum getting some experience as VP.
Media labled it as Bloody Thursday, on Drudge; the 48 hours of nuclear war using Romney’s $20 million smear launch against Newt, timed to coincide with the endless media coverage on the bipolar exwife story televised, at the same time RINOS went on the record that Newt was “unstable”. It all cascaded on Newt after he blew out South Carolina and was going into FLORIDA, where he was slammed, never to quite recover. Newt was shrafed, is that the word, like Omaha Beach.
Yet he leads. What a man.
Let me give those who don’t remember a little Tennessee history. It wasn’t that long ago, Tn had two RAT Senators...
Jim Sasser and Al Gore.
Al Gore left the senate only to lose his home state when he ran for the Presidency.
Jim Sasser got his ass voted out of the senate.
OK, so we have had moderate GOP senators. Still better than
Liberal senators or RINO senators like Snowe, Collins or Brown.
Thank you for that explanation. I remember all those situations but didn’t know the name was Bloody Thursday. Thank you!!!!
Old Al was not a Tennessean. He was raised in DC, only visited Carthage, and everyone knew it. :)
I voted for him in Ohio Valley Appalachia...he did miserably. My county (Guernsey) all the other immediately-surrounding counties went for Rick.
Monday at 5:30PM CDT Alabama GOP Forum, perhaps, this will be a break out for NEWT.
