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.

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.
