Newt’s campaign over? Reports suggest Gingrich will drop out Tuesday

  • cause Facing an array of issues that suggested he didn’t have a shot — tons of campaign debt, unorthodox fundraising and media coverage that focused almost entirely on Mitt, Newt banked his hopes in last night’s primaries on Delaware — and didn’t win anything at all.
  • effect Now, nearly a month after more realistic competitor Rick Santorum did the same thing, Newt is planning to drop out, according to multiple sources. The GOP candidate reportedly pans to drop out on Tuesday, and will likely endorse Mitt Romney. source

Fading fast? Newt Gingrich selling donor lists to stay in the 2012 race

  • $4.5M the amount of debt the also-ran GOP candidate, who’s trying to stay in the race, currently has
  • $135 the amount Newt is charging for 1,000 names off his 193,963-strong major donor list
  • $50 the amount Newt is charging for 1,000 names from his 388,210 small donors source

» Wanna buy some donor information? Newt’s gotten so desperate to pay off his significant debts that he’s now selling a key element of his campaign on a TMA Direct, a direct-marketing brokering firm. You can buy the names yourself if you’d like — large donors over here and small donors over here. Anyone want to chip in $5 into a pot to buy some small donors?

  • however … Even though Newt is totally looking like a dog in New Hampshire, don’t look for him to drop out anytime soon — he’s polling relatively decently in the Palmetto State, though he polled better about a month ago. source

Iowa caucus prelude: Newt sheds tears over the death of his mother: In a moment that evoked Hillary Clinton’s famous 2008 tear-shed, Gingrich said this about his mom, who died in 2003: “I identify my mother with being happy, loving life, having a sense of joy in her friends.” We don’t doubt the tears are real. source Follow ShortFormBlog

We agree entirely with Governor Romney and Massachusetts legislators that our goal should be 100 percent insurance coverage for all Americans.
Newt Gingrich • Speaking in support of then Gov. Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health insurance plan back in 2006, on a site long hidden in the annals of the Internet — well, until now. Archive.org is your friend, guys. source (viafollow)

I’ve challenged Governor Romney to meet me for ninety minutes in Iowa next week, anywhere, anytime. Timekeeper. No moderator. And we will bring all of his negative ads and show them for free and he can explain them.
Newt Gingrich • Offering Mitt Romney a free Lincoln-Douglas style presidential debate ahead of the January 3 Iowa Caucuses; we hope that Gingrich decides to throw in a continental breakfast to sweeten the deal! They could, like, drink some juice, eat some rubber pancakes, and talk Israel. They wouldn’t even have to stand at podiums! They could just do it in the Marriott and put it on USTREAM. It’d be awesome. source (viafollow)

POLL: Newt Gingrich looks strong (but beatable) in Iowa
If he doesn’t screw up over the next month … With Iowa just around the corner, the former House speaker has momentum to spare, leaping far ahead of Romney. And look at Ron Paul’s super-impressive showing in this poll. (In another poll, he’s ahead of Romney.) With Cain now out of the race, it looks like Gingrich could get a huge bump out of this whole thing, on top of the one he already has. Think Gingrich will coast, or will Romney become the comeback kid? Or will other candidates crop up? source

It’s wrong to go around and adopt radically different positions based on your need of any one election, then people will have to ask themselves, ‘What will you tell me next time?’
2012 GOP candidate Newt Gingrich • Dropping a clear attack at Mitt Romney for his tendency to flip-flop. This is a change for Gingrich: Before this week, he was known for going out of his way to avoid criticizing his fellow candidates and pointing the trigger directly at Obama. Now that he’s suddenly in the thick of the race, it looks like he’s getting braver about going after the perceived frontrunner. source (viafollow)
