ORLANDO, Florida - Newt Gingrich's campaign announced Tuesday it raised $5 million dollars in January on top of the $10 million raised last quarter, however aides would not indicate how much cash the campaign has on hand -- a critical number for determining whether they can make it through the summer as the former speaker has pledged to do.
This weekend the candidate told Bloomberg News that his campaign was down to approximately $600,000 cash on hand and spending money as quickly as they get it. Since then spokesman R.C. Hammond has said the candidate misspoke and the $600,000 was referring to the amount the campaign had entering the South Carolina primary and they have since raised $2.5 million in money bombs.
However, when pressed, Hammond was unwilling to give a figure for how much cash they have right now.
Gingrich dropped by a polling station at First Baptist Church of Windermere for his first stop on primary day, shaking hands with voters and swarmed by cameras. Mitt Romney has taken a double digit lead in polls leading up to Tuesday but Gingrich told reporter he didn't expect to "lose big" here.
OMG. I forgot about Georgia. (Sorry Georgia.)
Thanks for brightening my day!
We turned on a religious movie from Netlfix!
I can’t take anymore politics today.
God bless you extra, for enduring Romney.
Prayers for Newt and all of his supporters!
He has the Christian vote and the TEA Party although it’s likely the two corss over!
We need brightening!
GO TEA PARTY!
When Newt is on message,
He can’t be beat.
When he pouts and whines,
Voters turn and retreat.
Message, not money
The lesson is clear.
Will Newt remember?
That is not clear - - - -
Religion and ethnicity are meaningless in the 21st century US unless you are an unassimilated fool. A huge portion of our ancestral homeland is secular, hence the fact that it has an atheist president and the Church has had difficulty attracting men for a very long time. Italy ain't the Phillipines when it comes to Catholicism, and my Italian grandfather himself was an anti-clerical agnostic. 100 years ago, the Irish hierarchy was shocked at the lack of devotedness amongst Italian immigrants (especially the men) as compared to the Poles, Germans, etc.
I am a 21st century educated white American. I can choose to believe or NOT believe what I want. The fact is that our founders were no fans of the RCC due to its hostility to our founding principles. See my attenuated tag line as a case in point.
“The presidency is a dream come true for the LDS. And the LDS is RICH!!!”
I do know that a president Mitt would be a huge boon to Mormon evangelism. “Knock, knock. Hello Madam. We are Mormons, just like President Romney. Would you like to hear more about the exciting faith that helped Mitt make his $250 million and go onto become president?”
A friend was saying that the Mormons are a hierarchical church and that there are two levels above Mitt who basically can tell him to do anything and he is obliged as an underling. Is that true?
I was just commenting on your post regarding Gingrich.
I'm not sure what your motivation was in attacking his Faith, but please don't think I have an issue with your belief system. It really doesn't concern me.
Have a good evening my FRiend...
No one even mentions my choice Rick Santorum. Sigh...I do not like Newt’s whiny arrogance. There’s a reason he didn’t win vs Mitt and some of it has to do with his inability to raise enough money to fight. He also has a poorly organized team of advisors, JMO. I can’t warm up to him, sorry but I just can’t.
It will be interesting to see what the rest of the nation thinks so don’t bite my head off because I don’t agree with everyone’s love of Newt.
I hope that all of us will vote for the GOPer left standing in November, whoever it is. We have to eject the chimp in chief...anyone but obammmie!
All the states are experiments for the various GOP wannabes. It’s true, Newt hardly spent squat in Florida, while Mitt bought tons of sh*t, all aimed at Newt. That wasn’t true in South Carolina. But can Mitt buy that kind of sh*t in every state? Even across most of the South? Color me deeply skeptical. Especially when he tries to do it in Texas.
To the mormon church, that’s milk money.
Where was all this milk money in 2008, when he conceded the candidacy to John McCain, who is a weak Episcopalian?
Dress rehearsal for name recognition down the road, the requirement of a government in constitutional crisis had not been fulfilled...see “White Horse Prophecy”. He’s getting lds funding in buckets now.
I went to search for an article I'd read a few days ago on mormon contributions to Romney's campaign...
It appears ALL references to Romney's mormon money connections in this campaign have been thoroughly scrubbed. I even found references to contributions to his 2008 campaign from lds sources, but articles that I googled days ago on his current campaign contributions, Google no longer lists.
Look for yourself. You can't even find any links to people speculating on the subject. All gone.
What everybody is missing is the fact that Mormonism is a theocracy (just like a certain other false “religion” - remember, Joseph Smith referred to himself as a second Mohammed).
A theocracy is a system where the religious power and the civil power are one and the same and where the state is run by the clergy and religious law is applied. That certainly describes Mormonism, which would be even more overtly theocratic had it not been forced to back off and accept US law in order for Utah to become a state.
The last thing we need is another person in the White House or even on the campaign trial who doesn’t accept US law and believes that he is divinely ordained to “rule over” us.
Hmm. If this is the mischief fueling the sh*tstorm at Newt, then Newt needs to recognize that and point it out publicly. Newt is about the only guy who could do it brutally enough and brazenly enough to matter. Only question is will he.
Sorry but if whiner Newt can’t take Mitt outspending him, how will he take obambro outspending him? It looks to me like Newt was ill-prepared to run a decent campaign. He’s poorly organized and the fact that he spoke only to a group of REPORTERS over speaking to his SUPPORTERS in NV speaks volumes about how badly mangled his campaign truly is.
