Newt Gingrich to end presidential campaign
Seema MehtaSubmitting to fiscal and political reality, Newt Gingrich's campaign announced Wednesday that he would soon end his presidential run, awash in debt and having won only two states.
The former House speaker's bid was unlike any in recent memory — part presidential campaign, part book-signing and movie-screening junket, and part tour of the nation's zoos. It repeatedly imploded, but almost as repeatedly resurrected, seemingly by the sheer force of Gingrich's will. Along the way, he first boosted his standing as a GOP elder statesman after years offstage, but toward the end risked damaging his image with his drawn-out departure.
For months now, Gingrich has had no realistic chance of winning the Republican nomination, but he steadfastly remained in the race, insisting his presence would ensure that the party's conservative faction would have a voice at the GOP convention in August in Tampa, Fla.
