Skip to comments.Gingrich Seeks to Absorb Santorum Backers

That didnt take long: Newt Gingrich has humbly asked Rick Santorum supporters to channel their support (read: money) to his campaign.
The Gingrich camp, deeply in debt after dismal performances in recent primary races, released a statement minutes after Mr. Santorums exit from the Republican primary this afternoon, saying, Rick has waged a remarkable campaign. His success is a testament to his tenacity and the power of conservative principles.
I humbly ask Senator Santorums supporters to visit Newt.org to review my conservative record and join us as we bring these values to Tampa, Mr. Gingrichs statement continued. The former House speakers website, like most candidates, puts its funding pitch front and center.

Pretty low, even for Newt.
I guess he really wants to retire his debt.
Not low. Its the only way to get out of this shit.
Santorum would be doing the same if Gingrich had dropped out.... and guess what...many on the Gingrich bandwagon would have gone, including me, because we know that we are fighting for the soul of the GOP...
Hey Newt! Where were you in MI, OH, AK and WY?
Sorry, you had your chance, but you chose not to endorse Santorum.
So I’m not going to endorse you.
American Exceptionalism will be on the ascendency when President Newt Gingrich takes the oath in January 2013. He'll have the support of the Tea Party Rebellion and literally hundreds of thousands of FReepers. I can't wait for our country to be restored and for needless government regulations to be slashed by President Gingrich. And these absurd gasoline prices put in place by Obama will be a thing of the past in just a few more months when President Gingrich implements his plan to drill here and drill now.
Will Santorum backers out there switch to Newt? I probably will support Newt if he’s still in the race. I don’t think it’ll make any difference, but I won’t vote for Mittens in the primary.
I’d vote for Mitt before I’d vote for Gingrich.
ugh, perhaps his wife could pawn off some pearls.
no, not too low for Newt. Calli$ta call$. but hey, he’s not 0bama or Romney
Last week Santorum supporters kept saying that Gingrich supporters should abandon their guy and support the only Conservative who could still win.
Anything and everything can happen in politics if you just wait long enough.
What is “low” about it? It’s a heated campaign, for goodness sakes. Of course he’d like to pick up support!
Your post is nonsensical. Santorum is out of the race and Gingrich is still running.
Get over it.
Anyone but the multifaced (who am I today?) Romney!
So Im not going to endorse you.
What a perfect, succinct example of how we end up with @ssholes like Romney on the Republican ticket.
Meanwhile im watching Fat Albert and thinking of a race war in Tallahassee... load up folks..
Huh? What’s Newt supposed to do? The man’s running for president, for Pete’s sake.
You bet he’s reaching out to Santorum supporters. You would be too, in his shoes.
Newt should get all of Santorums nominees.
Those that support Mitt are closet Obama worshippers.
Mitt Romney if elected will be a cheesy remake or “prequel” to the Obama movie.
You sir, are smoking crack.
