Newt Gingrich’s Campaign Withers. Is Its Death and Perry 2012 Imminent?
If you read my horserace post, you know I’ve been hearing about Newt Gingrich’s campaign disintegrating. I was asked to hold back, but word is now pouring out like water from a crack.Steve Deace is reporting Gingrich’s Iowa team is closing up shop.The Daily Caller is now reporting that Gingrich’s team is leaving en masse.This tracks with what I’ve been hearing.Now keep in mind that Gingrich’s senior team is also Rick Perry’s senior team. You don’t have to be a genius to start drawing some conclusions from what is happening to Gingrich.For what it’s worth, I do not believe Gingrich is dropping out and there are no indications that Gingrich is dropping out. This just seems to be additional evidence that Gingrich’s management chaos has changed little since he was Speaker of the House. I think he thinks this thing was supposed to be handed to him.On Newt’s Facebook page, he just put this up:
“I am committed to running the substantive, solutions-oriented campaign I set out to run earlier this spring. The campaign begins anew Sunday in Los Angeles.”
And I’m not sure if he is back from the Mediterranean yet.
