Thank Goodness! Now if we can just get Santorum do drop and do the same thing we can finish Romney and his liberal RINO backers off for good!
Watch this event online here:
Here’s the original report on the Cain endorsement:
BenKenobi will be deeply saddened.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Cain just endorsed Gingrich!!!!!!!! Woooooohoooooo!!!
Woo hoo!! Go, Newt!!
Rebellion is on!!
“Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain endorsed Newt Gingrich for the GOP nomination late on Saturday at the same time accepting a position as the former House Speakers tax reform chairman.
The author of the now-famous 9-9-9 tax plan announced his endorsement in West Palm Beach, Florida, three days ahead of that states vital primary. The endorsement is a welcome boost for Gingrich, who has found himself having to defend himself against a vicious onslaught of attacks from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney...”
Surprised it took so long, the two seem very tight. Suspect the Romney campaign burning up the phones to Jeb Bush for a last minute endorsement to counter.
Go Newt!!! And thank you, Herman!
How many times were we told that Cain was going to endorse Mitt.
Well it didn't happen, did it.
I thought Cain already endorsed “the people”?
He just did it! Wooohooo!!!
“Suspect the Romney campaign burning up the phones to Jeb Bush for a last minute endorsement to counter.”
Jeb, who? Oh, you mean the Jeb who met with hussein at the white hut this week?
Thanks Herman! Go Newt!!
Is there any doubt that Romney’s campaign has been the one putting out the dirt on the other candidates including Cain.
Good move Herman...very good move!
I don’t want Santorum to drop out before Romney’s defeat is guaranteed, but Santorum needs to go after Romney only.
Mormons are notorious for putting on a facade
Mitt is to Conservativism
Mormon is to Christianity
I guess he’s lost faith in “the people”, and figured out he has to endorse a real candidate.
Hopefully, this will help — Cain was polling very well in Florida at one time. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of early voting. But maybe this can help turn the momentum around.
I hope the announcement is covered by the media.
I notified fudge oops sorry did I say fudge.
I wouldn’t doubt for a second that Romney’s campaign is the one that unloaded all the smears on Cain.
Realistically, Gingrich has likely lost Florida. But it makes an enormous difference how big or small Romney’s lead is for Gingrich’s viability going forward. If Gingrich remains reasonably close, he can maintain popular support and fund-raising ability, and pick up some delegate-rich upcoming states.
Florida has 50 delegates. But Texas - primary on April 3rd - which Gingrich would surely win, has 155. And it’s not just Texas. A state like Minnesota - which I never thought of as a conservative bastion - has 40 delegates, and Gingrich is heavily favored in the latest poll released 1/25 (Gingrich 36 v. Romney 18):
Palin... Perry... Cain... all Newt needs is Santorum and Romney is history.
Thank God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great news!!!! GO NEWT! WOOT! WOOT!
Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper. - Thomas Jefferson
Pray for Santorum’s family, for those who just heard the news on C-Span.
Sarah Palin was just on FOX... she all but officially endorsed Newt. She said he has the best chance of beating Obama, and he’d destroy Obama in a debate.
She also took jabs at Romney for Romneycare..
Oh, I know they were. I’m disappointed Herman had dropped out at the time because I was ready to go to bat for him with the NJ accuser and Brad Brewster allegations.
Anyway, I hope now that Herman has endorsed Newt those people that were bashing him or calling him stupid or a Mitt stalking horse finally lay off him. The actual endorsement doesn’t surprise me. I think the intention was there he was going to endorse Newt all along, but they were saving it for a more “critical” time when Newt would be most likely to benefit from it. For example, I really believe that if Newt had needed a boost in SC before the primary there, Herman would have endorsed him instead of the “American People” on Jan 19. When it became clear Newt didn’t need a boost there, Herman put it off.
I doubt that Cain has lost faith in “the people.” I think it is much more likely that he has totally lost faith that the lying POS Romney will run a clean campaign. I’m sure he was contacted by people here in Florida and was told about all the garbage Romney has been trying to pull. It is absolutely disgusting and just as bad as anything he pulled four years ago. I have not supported Newt at all, but Romney’s actions have been so vile, it even got me to decide to vote for Newt anyway.
I have no doubt that Romney was behind the smear campaign against Cain because the stench of Romney was everywhere. Maybe after seeing Romney in action down here, Cain realizes just how sleazy Romney really is.
What news? Is someone in his family ill?
Nothing from drudge yet.
ok... Newt HAS to make a deal with Santorum! Even if he has to give him the VP slot! I don’t care, because we HAVE to stop Romney !
Gingrich/Santorum 2012 and this race is over!
Here are the details. I won’t try to summarize because I’m just learning about it myself.
Santorum cancels morning events to be with child
How do you know? Do you have a link?
Another thread here quotes news reports that Broward County (Florida SE Coast) early voting was light.
She is clearly for Newt...but so far she does not want to violate her contract with Fox.
Not a bad idea to give Santorum the VP slot, as it could help in PA, OH, WV type states.
That’s illegal. Remember Blago: “I got this thing and it’s effing golden!”
Do you think that a guy who drops out over woman problems giving an endorsement is going to help? I am not sure but I have a feeling that Newt has been warmly welcomed to the you won’t get many womens votes club as a result. Politics is about appearance.
If Broward early voting is light, that is excellent news. Much of Mitt’s support would come from the liberal southern part of the state where Broward is located. If they stay home, the rest of the state will have a better chance to put Newt over the top.
