    The Newt Gingrich campaign found itself in a state of confusion Friday night when reports surfaced that Gingrich would cancel all of his stops in North Carolina next week, fueling suggestions that Gingrich would be suspending his campaign. But the campaign says nothing is happening. Two people close to the Gingrich campaign told ABC News they were contacted and told all of Gingrich’s North Carolina stops had been canceled, although R.C. Hammond, communications director for the campaign, said there was a “communication glitch.” “There was confusion, but we will maintain our North Carolina schedule next week,” Hammond said. One person...

    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Newt Gingrich, GOP candidate for president, just finished up a Buffalo rally organized by developer and former gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, a fellow Republican. He asked for supporters' votes in next week's presidential primary. "We need your vote on Tuesday. I am the underdog," he said. Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania suspended his campaign last week, but he is still on the ballot. Tuesday was the last day for candidates to submit documentation to the state Board of Elections to invalidate his candidacy, a spokesman for the agency said. Because of that, the votes for...

    The Associated Press NEW YORK —Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich told Republicans at a New York state party dinner that he would work for Mitt Romney’s victory in the general election if Romney wins the nomination. “We are dedicated to a unified Republican Party,” he said. Speaking Thursday in New York City, Gingrich said he’s stayed in the race “to articulate big themes and big ideas” but that “we have a moral obligation to defeat Barack Obama.” To that end, he said, he would work to support Romney, and he said Romney would do the same for him. “Romney and I...

    Rep. Schakowsky (D) has introduced a bill, the WORK Act, Woman's Option to Raise Kids, giving federal assistance that would supplement TANF benefits (for the first 3 years), because under current law a woman (poor or not) raising kids does not have her work raising kids counted as real "work." Dems are attempting to use Ann Romney's words against her. Ann Romney said that staying home and raising kids is "work." and Dems are countering that by saying that it shouldn't be just people like Ann Romney that should get to stay home and "work." Schakowsky believes that poor women...

    RealClearPolitics had access to a meeting in Dover, Delaware Wednesday held by Newt Gingrich. During the get-together with members of the Delaware Tea Party, Gingrich, a former Fox News analyst, lambasted the channel. “I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through,” said Gingrich, adding, “Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than FOX this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of FOX, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of FOX. That’s just a fact.” Gingrich revealed he’s been invited by CNN to one of...

    The primary is over right? Who cares about massive Mitt voter manipulation or lies on behalf of Romney by the GOP? That’s just politics right? If it was good enough for Obama, it’s good enough for us? No. It’s called corruption. And if you are a patriot, try looking your children in the eye when you explain why you bought “mere words” that purchased a more entrenched tyrannical socialist government that will be even harder to turn back in four years. That is assuming we even HAVE elections in four years. There were 3,000 that stayed with Washington in the...

    As Republican Party leaders increasingly coalesce behind Mitt Romney as their presumed nominee for President this year, a defiant Newt Gingrich fights on and insists he will continue his own campaign until the GOP national convention in Tampa this summer. Following a fighting speech and hero’s welcome at the Lancaster County Republican Party dinner Tuesday night -- in which he followed Romney to the speaker’s podium -- the former House speaker spelled out to Human Events just why he remains an active candidate. “I owe it to the conservative movement to stay in the race,” Gingrich told us, emphasizing that...

    (NEW YORK) -- Rick Santorum said Monday night there is “no question Barack Obama has to be defeated,” but did not say he would back presumptive nominee Mitt Romney, instead revealing he had only spoken to Newt Gingrich, not Romney yet. “As far as going with a particular presidential candidate right now -- I mean -- had a chance to talk to Newt, I haven’t had a chance yet to talk to Gov. Romney,” Santorum said on a conference call. “But we’ll be talking to both of them and we are going to go out and deal with who we...

    Less than two months ago, Herman Cain, who was out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination, stood on a stage in West Palm Beach, just three days before the Florida primary and told the crowd, “I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for the president of the Unites States.” Gingrich had just come off a sweeping win in South Carolina, had the fundraising dollars pouring in and a financial safety net in billionaire donor Sheldon Adelson. But on Monday Cain walked back his endorsement of Gingrich saying, “With all due respect, let’s get on with this, OK?”...
