    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is hinging his troubled and indebted campaign on a win in Delaware tonight, telling reporters following him in North Carolina that he “will have something to say this evening once we see some results from today.” Gingrich hit the presumptive nominee, Mitt Romney, for giving a speech titled, “A Better America Begins Tonight,” which a senior Romney adviser said will show Romney in a “new light.” The senior adviser added that the general election campaign has begun. “I think it’s a very substantial mistake for Gov. Romney to be pretending these primaries aren’t occurring and...

    GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Saturday that his cash-strapped campaign machine will march forward into North Carolina next week -- despite reports that stops in that state and elsewhere had been placed on indefinite hold, according to a report by Fox News. Filed federal reports indicated that the Gingrich campaign had $4.3 million in debt and has $1.22 million cash on hand. The campaign raised $1.6 million in March but spent $2.01 million, Fox News reported. Other public records revealed that Gingrich started the month of March with $1.55 million in debt and only $1.54 million in cash reserves....

    Wilson Times - North Carolina ^ | April 15, 2012 | Janet Conner-Knox
    Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich came to Wilson on Saturday to ask Wilson Republican voters for their support and to let them know although he is the underdog he isn’t giving up his fight for the presidency. “I want you to know that I am the last conservative standing in this race, and that I intend to be the last conservative campaigning in this race,” Gingrich said. The Wilson County Republican Party held a kick off for the election Saturday afternoon at the Wilson County Fairgrounds. Other candidates also stood before the crowd of about 400 people and...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s campaign Monday began morphing into less of a pursuit of the presidency and more into an effort to shape the Republican platform and to influence the discussion in the fall elections. Campaigning in Raleigh, Gingrich said he planned to battle front-runner Mitt Romney in North Carolina’s May 8 primary and all the way to the GOP convention in Tampa, Fla., but conceded the prospects of overtaking the former Massachusetts governor were not bright. But he said Republicans still face serious choices at the convention and into the fall — whether the GOP...

    COMMENTARY | During the Republican presidential debate in Jacksonville, Fla., Thursday night, the subject of Newt Gingrich's moon colony idea came up. During the exchange, Mitt Romney especially revealed a smallness of vision and an ignorance of the issue. [snip]If Romney wants to know why Gingrich is so focused on the moon, he could go no further than to read Paul Spudis' The Case for Renewed Human Exploration of the Moon" in which the rationale for returning to the moon, not only for science, but also as a prelude to the exploration of the Solar System is examined. Spudis also...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 1-27-12 | Neil King
    Newt Gingrich is outpacing Mitt Romney by a comfortable margin among Republican voters nationwide, but also is showing evidence of the vulnerabilities that could hurt the former House speaker in a general election, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. With the two rivals fighting it out in Florida after Mr. Gingrich's big South Carolina victory last week, the poll found Republicans nationwide favoring Mr. Gingrich 37% to 28% over Mr. Romney. GOP voters gave the former House speaker high marks for knowledge and experience, while they continued to harbor doubts about Mr. Romney's positions on the issues...

    MOUNT DORA, Fla. -- Newt Gingrich trained his full arsenal of weaponry on Mitt Romney at a rally here Thursday morning, charging that his opponent wouldn't stand up to President Obama in a general election and questioning his commitment to the GOP. It was the harshest critique Gingrich has leveled to date and may be a reflection of his slackened showing in the polls. It also underscored Gingrich's strategy of capitalizing on the free media and momentum he tends to capture in debates; tonight CNN is hosting the final debate before Florida voters render their judgment on Tuesday, and the...

    Newt Gingrich, who had trailed Mitt Romney by a double-digit margin in South Carolina in several polls conducted just after the New Hampshire primary, may instead be headed to a big victory there, recent polling suggests. Mr. Gingrich leads Mr. Romney 38-30 in the FiveThirtyEight forecast of South Carolina, which has been updated with polling through Friday evening. (Newt 82% chance of winning, chart at source link) Much of the reason for the relatively clear lead for Mr. Gingrich is that he has very clear momentum in the race. In a survey conducted by Public Policy Polling, for instance, Mr....

    COLUMBIA, S.C. — GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is appealing to South Carolina's evangelical Christians with a direct and urgent message: Christians are under attack, and Republicans shouldn't trust Mitt Romney to oppose abortion at all times. "We will not tolerate a speech dictatorship in this country against Christianity," the former House speaker told a crowd of 300 in Rock Hill, S.C., on Wednesday, railing against what he has called government intrusions on Catholic charities and other religious organizations. Gingrich is one of three conservatives, along with former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, trying to rally...

    Texas GOP Vote ^ | Jan 2, 2012 | By Larry Perrault
    I’ve put off getting this out, but for Iowa it’s the last minute now. A few weeks ago, George F. Will was asked if he thought voters would ultimately consolidate around Mitt Romney. Will, who has himself pointedly remarked on Romney’s historical pliability on the issues, answered yes, that it was hard to see how Romney doesn’t wind up the answer to William F. Buckley’s advocacy for nominating “the most conservative candidate, who can WIN.” Well especially in the wake of Obama’s abuse and devastation of America’s most vital elements, we still want to elect the best potential winner. Despite...

    Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich blasted the Justice Department for blocking a South Carolina voter identification law and suggested the Obama administration wants to “steal elections.” During a campaign stop in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the former House speaker questioned why Attorney General Eric Holder is “so determined not to identify if people are not eligible to vote”

    As the race for the Republican presidential nomination hots up, the candidates have been dropping hints about their possible running mates. Newt Gingrich today said he would 'certainly' consider asking Sarah Palin to join him on the ballot, while Mitt Romney was accompanied on a campaign stop this morning by Chris Christie, the popular Governor of New Jersey. Both those GOP heavyweights were thought of as potential candidates for the top job before announcing that they did not intend to run. Mr Christie endorsed the frontrunner Mr Romney in October, but Mrs Palin has yet to give her support to...

    I just started a new facebook page as a place for grassroots conservatives to urge Virginia to allow the leading Republican contender for the presidency onto the Virginia ballot. Gingrich is the Republican leader nationwide and in Virginia! It's absolutely ludicrous, if not criminal, for Virginia to deny the conservative base and tea party favorite a spot on the ballot while they promote their elite ruling class RINO! Do not allow Virginia to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of conservative grassroots voters who would mark their ballots for Newt Gingrich! Adding insult to injury, they don't even allow write-ins on their...
