Newt Suspends Campaign

In a sober twenty-minute speech today, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich officially announced the suspension of his 2012 campaign for President.  In today’s day and age, one has to “suspend” one’s campaign rather than just “end” it since there’s usually debt involved which must be handled.  Newt’s got lots of debt — $4 million worth.  Given that and the state of the race, it was time.

I endorsed Newt before Iowa and stuck by him through most of his travails — I thought Newt going negative in January to combat his opponents damaged his intellectual, above-the-fray, attack-the-press-not-fellow-Republicans image which attracted so many to him during his time as the anti-Romney du jour.  It was a respectable third-place run.  While not directly endorsing Romney, Newt reiterated an important point:

This is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan – this is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical leftist president in American history.

Amen.  With that in mind, forward onward to a victory for America in the Fall!  I hope Newt stays involved with his solutions-oriented ideas and clear-minded perspectives, nudging Romney to the right.
