The race for the Republican presidential nomination has always been about restoring the promise of America. Senator Santorum and I share an absolute commitment to that goal.
Mitt Romney • In a statement, released late Tuesday afternoon, thanking Rick Santorum for officially endorsing his campaign. “We share an absolute commitment to reversing the failing policies of the Obama administration,” Romney continued, “from its assault on freedom of conscience to its feckless foreign policy.” Rick Santorum sent an email to supporters late Tuesday night, endorsing Romney, and warning that the GOP “will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious.”  source (viafollow)

Virginia election poll, which shows Obama ahead, has one crazy stat:

  • 97% of blacks in Virginia plan to vote for Obama source

» That’s compared to 1 percent for Romney: While that stat (from a Washington Post poll) doesn’t say everything about the election, the lopsidedness of this one stat is pretty stunning. Overall in the state, Obama is ahead of Romney 51 percent to 44 percent, with the president leading among independents, women and younger voters, and Romney leading among whites and men. (hat tip to The Fix)

Newt Gingrich: Sorry for the confusing presidential announcement 
Did anyone else find the rollout of Newt Gingrich’s presidential plans to be a tad confusing? If so, Newt agrees with you. “It (the roll-out) led to unfortunate confusion,” Gingrich said yesterday. “I wish we had been a little more structured last week. But I don’t take it as a very serious problem.” Newt’s defense of his work during the 1995 shutdown was timed kinda weirdly and gave opponents a good talking point. Of course, it didn’t help that Fox News added their own wrinkle to the mess. But on the other hand, Newt did in fact prove us wrong, so we guess that’s worthy of some credit. source

Here’s a little blast from the past: Newt Gingrich bungled announcing the start to his campaign, pre-announcing the announcement and causing confusion in the process. And now he appears to have bungled announcing the end of it.

Which candidates will appear on the ballot in Utah?
Newt Gingrich may not make the ballot in Utah, after the check for his $500 ballot fee bounced. Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas confirmed that, after receiving the candidate’s paperwork and check in March, the state was recently contacted by the bank to notify them of the bounce. The state has apparently made multiple attempts to contact Gingrich, and have now given the candidate an April 20th deadline for the payment. Should they not hear from Gingrich in the next 8 days, he’ll be removed from the ballot. (Photo by Don Irvine Photos) source

Visit newt.org to review my conservative record and join us as we bring these values to Tampa. We know well that only a conservative can protect life, defend the constitution, restore jobs and growth and return to a balanced budget.
Newt Gingrich • In a statement reaching out to former supporters of Rick Santorum’s campaign, as the candidate prepares for the final leg of primary season. With several media outlets reporting that the campaign has considerable debt, and lacks the resources necessary for Newt to travel or run campaign ads, many are confused as to why the former Speaker of the House is still in the race. Newt’s explanation? “I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa,” he said, “so that the conservative movement has a real choice.” source (viafollow)
