Posted on 04/24/2012 6:24:18 PM PDT by VinL
Despite speculation that he might drop out of the presidential race soon, Newt Gingrich said he is pressing on during an exclusive interview with NewsChannel 36 anchor Dave Wagner Tuesday afternoon.
These reports somehow get exaggerated, Gingrich. We have 23 events this week What I did say was that we are going to evaluate actively and honestly what has happened here.
Gingrich spent part of Tuesday at the Billy Graham library with his wife and campaign staff. He is expected at an event Tuesday night in Concord as well.
Under any circumstance we are going to be at every single event we outlined this week and our expectation is that well continue to campaign until Romney gets to 1144 delegates.
I think it is very important for the voters to be the people who decide, not the news media or the campaign consultants, Gingrich added.

“Tomorrow, the campaign continues. And, I’m in, til Newt’s out.”
I am with you. GO NEWT GO!
LOL. That approach will definitely garner support for Mitt if he wins the nomination
Colonel,—— Mitt who??
Wouldn’t be a Newt thread without you, PB.
I voted today. Out of a population of 7,500, my poling place, one of 2, had 46 votes at 5 pm. There was ONE article in the paper yesterday that the primary was today. It was a well hidden event.
46 people. If you’re thinking that there is a groundswell for Romney, there isn’t.
No worries. _:)
I would love to see Newt in a debate with Zero. I want to hear Newt verbally abuse Zero!
I admit, I was wrong. Newt did manage to finish second in DE. I didn’t think he had it in him to beat Paul somewhere.
Won zero delegates tonight with a clean sweep for Romney.
So do we have an answer now? Santorum’s support isn’t going to Newt. It’s gone to Romney and Paul.
Always those hat do not give up... Please, how about pulling for the Republican winner. Mercy, we really need that with this corrupt Chicago crowd.
Newt is a wild-eyed boy in the radio shack
Hes the last remaining guest
He was tappin in a Morse code frenzy
Tappin Please God, S.O.S.
That’s the 2nd poem excerpt from you. Let me guess. Your boyfriend gave you a book of poems?
Well, here’s another:
“Small minds cannot be perplexed or frightened. But go on at their own private pace, during fortune or misfortune, like clocks in a thunderstorm.”
“how about pulling for the Republican winner”
I will crawl over broken glass to vote against leftists - whatever gang colors the leftist wears.
We haven't had an actual conservative nominee since Reagan, yet conservatives are politically savvy enough to know the Republican RINO is better than the Democrat Socialist. The vast majority will rally to the nominee. You may not this time around, but many people I know who refused to vote for McCain regret it now and will hold their nose and vote for Willard. There is always a few that go back and forth like this every cycle.
One of the only ways to prevent another Republican hug-the-center squish from being nominated next time around is for conservatives to actually find a candidate and agree to support him or her early on. Unfortunately, conservatives are far too divided to even accomplish that. All it takes is one social conservative, scripture quoting candidate to enter the race and play spoiler like Huckabee or Santorum and the remaining conservative vote splinters to pieces. Unless this changes, I don't have a lot of hope 2016 or 2020 will be any better. Any conservative 3rd party someone tries to start (again) will be torn asunder by the same conflicts.
If he’s still in it May 8, I’m still voting for him. Piss on the liberals.
None of my conservative aquaintances will vote for Romney.
He has the same chance as Dole and McCain.
Santorum and Romney are going to meet on May 4.
Amen brother. Amen.
There are worse things than an Obama re-election, nominating Obama as a republican would destroy the party.
Except the “realists” were entirely correct and all the fantasy happy-talk about Newt making a comeback was entirely wrong.
Not to worry. Tomorrow, the sun will rise, God will be in His Heaven— and Newt will be campaigning in North Carolina.
Enjoy the day, my friend.
Yeah, that's what seems to have happened. The problem for Newt at this point is he has been reduced to only a protest vote since he has no chance to win, and we already have Ron Paul in the race for that. The result seems to be that the more serious voters ended up getting on board with Willard, and the protest voters went to Ron Paul who is, after all, the real protest candidate.
Then again, at least in Pennsylvania, non-candidate Santorum soundly crushed Newt too. Infact in PA, Gingrich managed to finish behind Santorum who had already dropped out AND Ron Paul.
Newt only finished second in Delaware.
Ron Paul dominated him in Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania as well.
Right now, if a conservative wants to deny Romney delegates, his best chance is to vote for Ron Paul.
Santorum also came very close to beating Newt in Rhode Island as well, and should beat Newt in total votes tonight. Not too shabby for a withdrawn candidate.
