New web video: “Newt Gingrich: Frankly, not Mitt Romney’s biggest supporter”
The ex-Presidential candidate takes one last zoo tour with the press. NBC News’ Andrew Rafferty has the play-by-play.
Newt Gingrich will lose his Secret Service protection tonight, a few days before the scheduled end of his campaign.
The former speaker has dropped out, but his three network embeds are still here. A picture on Facebook features Gingrich posing with the three of them. Is this goodbye?
Newt Gingrich aide Joe DeSantis sent this set of talking points out to supporters today. He “can best serve his country as a private citizen,” but will keep working on “bold conservative breakthroughs,” according to the email obtained by BuzzFeed.
The Gingrich campaign is struggling to stay relevant in an atmosphere in which getting bitten by zoo animals draws more buzz for the candidate than actual policy proposals. In recent days, it appears the candidate has finally embraced his inner meme, realizing their campaign can only draw attention with the absurd.
Newt — plus embeds (!) and Secret Service — appears in New York City. Strikes a more conciliatory note than ever with Romney.
Expect more emails with the subject line “A special offer for Newt’s supporters” as Gingrich fights on, while racking up debt.
A delayed endorsement is a gesture of “respect” to Gingrich, Paul, and their supporters.
“The primary has been great for us,” the RNC Chairman tells BuzzFeed in an interview.
The hilarious cold open from “SNL” that can’t officially be rebroadcast due to music rights. Everyone gets to trot out their Republican primary impersonations one last time, from Kristen Wiig’s Michele Bachmann to Keenan Thompson’s Herman Cain. Unfortunately, since Paul Brittain is no longer a part of the cast, no Ron Paul.
The elderly Southern conservatives whose contributions fuel Newt Gingrich’s flagging campaign say they want him to keep on going. “Giving money to him is money well spent.”
It’s not Chatroulette, it’s a presidential campaign.
Talking points distributed by the campaign provide a rosy outlook, as the Republican Party rushes to Romney.
He’s still in the race. “I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa so that the conservative movement has a real choice,” he said in a statement. This is the new welcome page to his website.
Acknowledges on Huckabee’s new radio show that he and Gingrich are preparing to team up.
And what other primary attacks will Democrats successfully revive? “We’ve already discussed that!”
If these people can actually agree on something, it’s probably a good idea. So what did the chairman of Augusta say?
Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich channeled his inner John Edwards in this November 2011 appearance on The O’Reilly Factor. One question: Who at Fox leaked this quite amazing video to Gawker?
From denial to acceptance, from Ron Paul to John Edwards, a guide to the end of a political campaign. Right in the middle of it: Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.
Most say they didn’t catch objectionable lyrics which landed on Think Progress last night. Band was satirizing the Occupy movement.
Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich appeared on the Sean Hannity Radio show today and said he found President Obama’s comments “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” “disgraceful” and “appalling.” Gingrich said Obama “trying to turn” the death of Martin “into a racial issue” was “fundamentally wrong.”
His rag-tag campaign straggles cheerfully through Louisiana. All roads, they believe, lead to Tampa, the White House, and other grandiose things.
Local media only in Houma. It’s a regular practice for a candidate who can’t control his mouth. Press Secretary Hammond’s meltdown: “Complainers, complainers, complainers.”
With Newt Gingrich all but irrelevant, is Mitt Romney channeling his inner grandiose?
Why is the candidate with the strongest record on Hispanic issues poised to wash out on the island? If he had shown up, the race “would have been a lot closer,” Regis tells BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins.
Limping Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich regularly attacks Mitt Romney for signing into law the bill that was the basis for ObamaCare. But in 2010 interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network the former House Speaker was defending Romney on bill his saying “Governor Romney’s made very clear that he favors absolute repeal of Obamacare and that he believes it’s not accurate and not fair to try and compare the two.”
He failed to win a single state in his native South tonight, and has no road forward. Frankly, we’re going to miss him.
They’re not afraid of a two-person race against Rick Santorum. Says Santorum’s strategy is “pure fantasy, or vanity, or both.”
