As expected, Newt suspended the campaign today.

Here’s the full video (via ElectAd).

If you want, jump ahead to 3:45 when he starts giving shout outs to other candidates and then turns to his view on the campaign and the future.

Money line (17:45):  “This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most...

I thanked Newt the other day.

Newt thanks his supporters today, and has released a video in which he reiterates the need to defeat Barack Obama.

There aren’t going to be sour grapes or pouting.  He’s bigger than that, even if his enemies aren’t.

 
 
 

Thank you, Newt

Newt Gingrich will be exiting the race next week.  Newt not only will endorse Mitt Romney for President, Newt will pledge to work without rest to defeat Obama.

Is there anyone Romney would rather have on his side than Newt?

Oh yes, Newt will go there so that Romney doesn’t have to.  Newt...

Just breaking, via NY Times:

Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, according two of his advisers, bowing to the inevitability of Mitt Romney’s nomination and ending his improbable, come-from-behind quest to become the party’s conservative standard-bearer in the fall.

Mr. Santorum is due to make the...

You knew this was coming, the attempt to blame a Romney loss to Obama on comments made about Romney by other candidates.

Jamie Weinstein at The Daily Caller (via HotAir) writes that Newt’s legacy will be that his criticisms of Romney will be featured in Obama ads:

Newt Gringrich appeared at Tulane University yesterday the day before the primary.  The overflow crowd necessitated that speakers be set up outside the lecture hall so those who could not get in could hear the speech.

When a professor complained, the volume was lowered, but that was not good enough for her,...

Alabama and Mississippi polls: Gingrich on top, but not by much

A slew of new polls have recently been released showing that the Presidential campaign in the southern states is essentially a dead heat. Newt Gingrich appears to have a tenuous lead over the other candidates but, in almost every poll, he is within the statistical margin of error.

In Alabama,

Good for Newt for pushing back against David Gregory.

This segment epitomizes almost everything about how the MSM tries to frame the narrative against conservatives and particularly against religious Christians.

It actually got worse. After Newt, Gregory did the same thing to Eric Cantor, and then demanded to know from Cantor why Republicans...

When it mattered in the period between the South Carolina and Florida primaries, Drudge was all anti-Newt all the time, promoting falsehoods about Newt’s history with Ronald Reagan and assorted other Romney campaign themes.

Now Drudge is being nice to Newt, with this banner linking to a post at HotAir about Newt...

Newt has released a 28 minute video discussing energy independence. (h/t numerous readers)

Via Human Events, the video will be broadcast in key markets, in its entirety. Also, it was done entirely from memory, without aid of notes or a teleprompter.

Big question: Will people watch a 28 minute video?  Or is it enough...

It must be great to be Rick Santorum running against Mitt Romney.

By the time Mitt gets to you, after Mike H., John M. and Newt G., all of the sudden there is grave concern that Mitt will not be nice.  What’s that saying, it’s better to be lucky than good?

Yesterday, the editors of National Review called on Newt to drop out of the race in favor of Santorum:

When he led Santorum in the polls, he urged the Pennsylvanian to leave the race. On his own arguments the proper course for him now is to endorse Santorum and exit.
