Gingrich Says He’ll Stay in GOP Race After Tonight’s Result?

More Newt bashing?
The Washington Times reported today that Gingrich will stay in the race tonight after his expected second place finish in Nevada.

Newt Gingrich will stay in the Republican presidential nomination contest despite an expected loss to Mitt Romney in Saturday’s Nevada caucuses, the former speaker told The Washington Times late Saturday afternoon.

“We had excellent fundraising meetings and calls yesterday,” Mr. Gingrich said. “Super Tuesday and beyond look good.”

The Georgia native thus dispelled rumors circulating in the press that his campaign had scheduled a press conference for late Saturday, after the results were in from the Nevada caucuses.

“We will probably be a solid second here with [Rick] Santorum in last place,” Mr. Gingrich said, while acknowledging indirectly that attracting donors and voters in sufficient force to overtake Mr. Romney will be a challenge in the coming weeks.

Well yeah?
Why would he quit tonight?

The GOP establishment wanted Newt to drop out after Florida, too.

    More of the malicious media punking from Romney. Circulate a bogus rumor of a candidate quitting while people are casting votes. Its the Trump endorsement non endoresement all over again. Romney even campaigns like Obama . Sad how many republican only suck up to money and don’t give a damn about policy and voting records.

    “The GOP establishment wanted Newt to drop out after Florida, too.”

    And Gingrich wanted Santorum to drop out.

    Of course they want each other to drop out, that’s the easy path to victory, lol.

    Newt needs to go away. The freakish evangelical right are starting to scare me. They want to make certain of another Obama term. Newt is HORRIBLE. If they really were conservative, they’d vote for Santorum. I hope to see a Romney / Santorum ticket.

    Newt Gingrich Is Right

    You did not misread the headline; and it’s not just a truism about Mr. Gingrich’s political orientation, I mean he’s correct—that Florida’s winner-take-all primary system isn’t fair.

    According to Republican National Committee guidelines, all contests held prior to April 1 must allocate delegates proportionally. But Florida, not wishing to change procedures or fall behind other states, decided to flout the RNC rule, which means that Mitt Romney will get all 50 of its delegates. Mr. Gingrich—who came in second—will get none. Under a proportional system, Mr. Romney would receive 23 and Mr. Gingrich 16.

    Not only that, NPR has calculated that Mr. Gingrich would currently be leading his rival 39 to 32 overall (New Hampshire plus South Carolina plus Florida), if delegates were allotted proportionally.

    Mr. Gingrich’s campaign, which has surely done the same math as NPR, has complained to the Florida G.O.P., and consequently left me in a rather unfamiliar position. For perhaps the first time in my life, I completely agree with the former House speaker and future moon colonist.

    Mr. Gingrich might have raised this issue before the Florida primary, when some polls suggested he could eke out enough of a plurality to benefit from the winner-take-all system. I doubt he would care about the RNC guidelines if he’d managed to win, and I doubt Florida’s delegates will be instrumental in determining whether Mr. Romney or Mr. Gingrich earns the G.O.P. nomination.

    But the point is that a candidate in a two-person, winner-take-all primary could get 49.9 percent of the votes, and receive no delegates, and that’s not right. As our editorial board has said many times, both parties’ rules should be rewritten to guarantee that the number of delegates a candidate receives accurately reflects his percentage of the popular vote.

    I like Newt, he isn’t cow-towing to anyone, not even princess Coulter or Romney…or Obama and the GOP, pretty much in that orders

    Would you run for President and get the A kicking of your life from the party you are IN.

  • Tjexcite

    The GOP establishment wanted Newt to drop out back in the 90’s. The longer he stays in the better the DNC will have a chance to show why.

    Super Tuesday in March will decide who the clear front runner will be.

    And who the heck cares what Ann Coulter has to say!!! America needs to think for themselves and quit listening to any/all pundits/celebrity endorsements/lamestream media, and that includes FOX!

    What’s frustrating is that too many people still spend more time/put more effort into picking lottery numbers than looking into who/what these candidates are all about!!!

  • OxyCon

    I like Newt, but I hate to say it…Romney’s negative ads against Newt have pretty much proven that Newt is unelectable, and their effectiveness has also proven that Romney knows how to play with the big boys.

    I know it sucks when your guy doesn’t win…mine never do…but all I want to see this time around is Obama out of office.

  • Adi

    After being attacked on such personal level, I won’t surprised.

    I hope however there is a higher calling in this race, that goes beyond personal attacks.

    “The GOP establishment wanted Newt to drop out..”

    First of all, Newt is as much part of the GOP establishment unless you are one of a growing number of conservatives who are wondering if he is “consulting” with the re-elect Obama crowd.

    Second of all, the numbers make it clear that a lot more than the GOP establishment think it’s time drops out.

    Third, why doesn’t he endorse Santorum now so we have a chance to stop Romney? (see “First” above)
