Skip to comments.Gingrich to WCNC: 'We’ll continue to campaign'

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.

According to Romney in a widely quoted NYT interview, which seems to be the only source. Yes, they've known each other since their time at Boston Consulting Group in 1976 and have had intermittent contact, but I don't see any similar affirmation from Netanyahu, only a wishy-washy quote from an aide.
Nothing in the local (MA) gossip suggests that Romney knows what a "close friend" is.
True. It’s a no brainer.
Romney is a horrible candidate.
Newt has the potential—based on his record, what he’s been saying and the lessons he’s learned in life—to be as good as or better than Ronald Reagan.
There’s nothing to lose in throwing all our support behind Gingrich.
Romney won all the northeast states. Surprise, surprise. How many would he win in November. I’d bet none.
Do we want the whole country to look like Massachusetts when Romney was governor? I hope not.
...the 41st President of the United States.
Thank you for the enriching political discussion regarding the topic of the thread.
Go ahead cast your LOSING vote, no matter what the result, the republican party and America loses, horribly.
What astounds me is some conservatives can't understand the "absolute" detrimental effect of this GOPe/rino vote. For everybody else, it doesn't matter at this point...Some are just too ignorant of history to understand.
Oh yes it does. We chatted with the poll workers. They said no one was enthusiastic, more fatalistic. And that the primary was not well advertised or promoted.
Romney is a loser.
And they weren't. And I'm not the only FReeper that's talking about empty polling places.
I proudly supported Newt in the GA primary, and will continue to do so. The Romneybots hate to hear the truth, but here it is: IF YOU VOTE FOR ROMNEY, YOU ARE BLATANTLY SUPPORTING MARXISM. Goooooooooooo NEWT!!!!!
Frankly I think it’s kind of a dumb decision.
That being said, hey, more power to him. I agree with you. If he annoys the Blue Bloods and Lamestream media than this makes me happy.
I voted for Newt yesterday here in the swamps of Delaware.
He did the best in Delaware yesterday, garnering 27% of the vote.
He would have won this state but recent happenstances changed and affected so much.
First, Santorum and Paul were BOTH on the Delaware Republican primary ballot yesterday. Between those two, about 12% of the vote was likely siphoned from Newt.
Second, there’d been big rumors last week that Newt was cancelling his North Carolina appearances and, while Newt’s campaign denied, it greatly affected the turnout.
Voter turnout was very lackluster yesterday. Had all that crap last week not been thrown out there to be repeated hysterically by the media (and to make me wonder if it wasn’t some operative in the Romney campaign somehow making this happen) I believe turnout would have been higher.
In short, I’m quite certain that Delaware, where we kicked out Mike Castle and voted in Christine O’Donnell to great ridicule, would be Newt all the way over Romney given a fair and vibrant primary.
Fox reporting Newt is “wrapping up campaign” in a week and “will probably endorse Romney” on that day...
What? Are you referring to the Gallup/USAToday 'poll'?
The one that sampled "Registered voters" not "Likely voters"?
The one that included 7 Bobo-in-2008 states the GOP nom doesn't need to win? [CO, IA, MI, NH, NM, PA, WI]
PA & MI included as "swing states" when the last time those two of those large states went GOP was 1998?
Indiana excluded from a swing state poll despite going for Obama in 2008?
Here's what you need to know: The Electoral Math of 2012 greatly favors the challenger... 2008 + IN, NC, FL, NV, VA, OH = 271EV.
24 years ago. That swing state poll was pure bs.
In my district the poll workers were likewise. Some actually stated, "What are we voting for" with arms swung up! Distraught over Romney proclaiming his win before he had the delegates, and the media vocally shutting out the election and claiming Romneys win so that any who voted would indeed check Romney....and many followed the pitch.
The MSM suppressed the vote. The advocacy journalism is blatantly obvious.
The media has power it should not have, but like the candidates, money does move these machines. They own.. 'the message'... the public is to get, regardless of reality, and will paint whatever picture is necessary to position who they will favorably... and destroy those otherwise.
The media has always had power. They were infiltrated by the left and started using that power to push their POV. And the sheep haven’t caught on.
2 FReepers last night stated "I will actively campaign for Obama now."
No it wasn't sarcastic.
I can understand people staying home or voting for a write in.
But if these FReepers will be posting Obama / Biden 12 Propaganda here, then you will see a mass exodus.
Since I cannot find their posts I'm assuming the Mods deleted it, which is a comforting thing.
Most FReepers voted for Newt or Santorum, none of us who voted that way have told people to vote for Mitt Romney.
But when FReepers tell people to vote for Obama, that is offensive to me.
None of my conservative aquaintances will vote for Romney.
He has the same chance as Dole and McCain.
Found it! Please don't try and twist this statement Katie you know what JRandomFreeper means in this statement.
FR is against RINOs! And I support FReepers in their beliefs but this is not a forum to support Barack Hussein Obama!!!
