“We will now be moving from the role of candidate and candidates spouse, to the role of active citizens.” Newt Gingrich stated as he announced the suspension of his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
With only two wins in the whole primary, and a doubt amounting up to $4 million, it comes at no surprise that the Newt has finally decided to step down.
Just like Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich is stating that he and Callista will remain active. Keeping the pressure on Romney and pushing the important issues that have been brought up throughout this long primary process.
He will be talking with Mitt Romney very soon and arranging a joint event between the two politicians so that Newt can make a formal endorsement for the presumptive nominee. Newt is already talking about supporting Mitt and working with him in defeating President Obama.
It seems that almost all of the former candidates are now taking up some sort of role in the 2012 election year, and it will be interesting to see if they all will work together.
Newt Gingrich has a long way to go to solving his own problems that his massive debt. This would have been easier to deal with if he hadn’t let it grow to this point and had his supporters help him pay it down like the Santorum campaign has done.
A lot of people believe that he has diminished his voice and presence that he gained through his years as the speaker of the House. Do to the fact that he stayed in to long and it wasn’t helped by the multiple events when he lost campaign staffers across several states.
