    In the lastest Rasmussen tracking poll, which has had no media coverage, Newt Gingrich is trailing Barack Obama by only 7 points nationally. Barack Obama is leading Mitt Romney by only 5 points in Florida. These poll results are being withheld by the RNC and the MSM, who want no positive news about Newt in circulation, especially the fact he is only behind Obama by 7 points nationally. The RNC establishment’s current strategy remains: Publish no poll numbers; spread the word that Romney is the nominee; have people vote based on blackout and misinformation expecting Romney to win big; then...

    THE ENEMY OF A LIAR IS ACCURACY! So what was it that you said you wanted in a replacement for the Oval Office?? I thought it was honesty, and integrity, and Pro-Am policies that support main street, our Constitution, Laws of the land and the freedoms we hold dear. Wasn’t it??? Didn’t you?? You said you wanted someone who could communicate that without a teleprompter. You said you were sick of the lamestream media lies (have you already forgotten that you are the mainstream media??). Well accuracy, dear friend and conservative voter, is the enemy of lies. I want a...

    NY-1 ^ | 04/19/2012 | Bobby Cuza
    With the state's Republican primary looming next week, GOP leaders gathered in Midtown for their annual dinner Thursday night as all thoughts turned to presidential politics. NY1's Bobby Cuza filed the following report. Newt Gingrich isn’t giving in, at least not until Mitt Romney has the required 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination. “Mitt’s not yet at 1144 [delegates]. And as you know, this is a big sports town. And you have no obligation to quit until the game’s over," Gingrich said. Gingrich spoke to NY1 Thursday during a two-day swing through New York ahead of next...

    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....

    GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Saturday he will move forward with stops next week in North Carolina, following reports that events had been cancelled as a result of communication problems. Wayne King, vice chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, said he got a call from Gingrich who personally told him campaign events are on for next week and that a schedule is forthcoming. Reports that Gingrich -- whose campaign is deep in debt and trailing far behind Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney -- surfaced late Friday night when a source told Fox News the candidate’s scheduled campaign stops in...

    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...

    The future of Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign seems to hinge on the Delaware primary early next week. "Tuesday is a big day," a source close to the Gingrich campaign told NBC News. "Newt is just waiting to see what happens on Tuesday." Up until now, Gingrich has promised to take his campaign all the way to the Republican convention in Tampa at the end of the summer, although the odds are not in his favor. The former House speaker has been spending the majority of his time the past three weeks in the First State. Gingrich has made at least...

    Politico ^ | 4-20-12 | Phillips
    Even as Newt Gingrich’s campaign teetered on the edge of collapse in March, the wife of a casino mogul gave a pro-Gingrich super PAC another $5 million. The contribution brought the Adelson family’s pro-Gingrich tally to $20 million — a figure Sheldon Adelson himself was floating in December, POLITICO reported. The Adelsons almost single-handedly funded Winning Our Future’s operations since its inception in December, but in recent days, Adelson has signaled he will put his wealth behind establishment Republican candidates. The super PAC, Winning Our Future, ended last month with $5.76 million in its account, having raised $5.05 million while...

    We have around 15,000 calls that need to be made to Delaware before Tuesday's primary. If we can get Champions for Newt who will make as many calls as they can between Friday and Monday, or Tuesday, we can do it! As much as the political and media establishment would like to declare this race over and coronate Mitt Romney as our inevitable nominee, it just isn’t the case. This campaign has had its up and downs, and we’ve seen the momentum shift on a dime. And within the next week, we believe we have a real opportunity to upset...

    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...

    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...

    WILMINGTON, Del. — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich returned to Delaware on Wednesday, hoping a victory in the state's primary on Tuesday will lend credibility to his flagging presidential campaign and his plans to shape the Republican national platform. Gingrich told a crowd of more than 100 people in Wilmington that re-electing President Obama would be "a disaster of the first order."
  • Gingrich: Romney’s mortgage deduction idea ‘class warfare’

    The Wall Street Journal - Market Watch ^ | April 18, 2012 | Robert Schroeder
    Republicans aren’t shy about lobbing the “class warfare” charge at Democrats. But now Newt Gingrich is aiming those words at Mitt Romney over Romney’s idea to scrap or limit the mortgage-interest deduction for second homes. Romney, the Republicans’ all-but-certain presidential nominee, told donors in Florida last weekend that he’d take away the deduction for high-income earners. His campaign later said it was just an idea, not a hard-and-fast policy. But Gingrich took it as gospel. “Governor Romney’s proposal to limit certain tax deductions based on income, including the deduction for mortgage interest on second homes, is a surrender to the...

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is scheduled to visit Fayetteville next week, according to local party leaders.
