Is Newt Gingrich shaking things up with an eye towards Tampa?
SIREN—breaking on Politico: Newt Gingrich is laying off a third of his staff and has forced out his manager to focus on convention— Mike Allen (@mikeallen) March 28, 2012
Big news on the GOP nomination race, from Politico’s Mike Allen. In recent weeks, the drumbeat for Gingrich to drop out of the race has become louder and louder, despite his insistence that he would fight on to the GOP Convention in Tampa. Is this an indication he plans to stay true to his word? Earlier today, he said he could indeed drop out and support Mitt Romney, but he only would if Romney reached the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the nomination – a task that increasingly looks improbable if not impossible.
