    President Obama found Republican candidates to be useful props during his speech at the Associated Press luncheon today, while the audience proved a reassuring and laugh-happy crowd. "That renowned liberal Newt Gingrich, called the first version of that [Paul Ryan] budget 'radical,'" Obama sarcastically told the assembled reporters. "This is coming from Newti Gingrich!" Obama was referring to Gingrich's description of the Ryan budget as "right-wing social engineering." Obama moved from the Gingrich dig to mocking Romney for using the word "marvelous". "One of my potential opponents, Mitt Romney," Obama observed, "said that he's very supportive of this new budget....

    Favorite Son Rick Santorum leads former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney 41 - 35 percent among likely voters in Pennsylvania's Republican presidential primary, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Texas U.S. Rep. Ron Paul has 10 percent, with 7 percent for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. With three weeks before the primary, 6 percent of likely voters remain undecided and 37 percent of those who name a candidate say they still could change their mind, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. This is the first look at likely voters and cannot be compared with earlier surveys of registered...
  • Gingrich: I Can Support Santorum, Talk of Shared Ticket to Stop Romney

    There is growing talk that if former House Speaker Newt Gingrich drops out of the race and "suspends" his campaign, he may throw his support behind Rick Santorum in an effort to deny Mitt Romney the GOP nomination. And, for the moment, Gingrich is not yielding to the slew of establishment endorsements for Mitt Romney. Gingrich told CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday that Romney has no lock on the nomination and the math doesn't show him getting the 1,144 delegates easily to clinch the nomination. A leading Gingrich campaign official also suggested this weekend that their camp may work...

    Sunday, March 18, 2012 It's Time For Gingrich To Drop Out of Race For GOP Nomination EDITORIAL The time has come for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to drop out the Republican presidential race and allow Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum to battle it out for the GOP nomination. After an up-and-down campaign, Gingrich based his chances primarily on a Southern strategy. That worked, with wins in South Carolina and Georgia. Then Gingrich set his sights on Alabama and Mississippi, where voters make their decisions on Tuesday. Gingrich had been first or second in those two states in pre-election polls....

    MARCH 16, 2012 Tampa Tempest Newt Gingrich Plots Convention Chaos. By Robert Costa As he waited for the returns on Tuesday, Newt Gingrich didn’t pay much attention to the soft flicker of Fox News. Instead, as he sat with his family and a few aides in a suite at the Wynfrey Hotel in Birmingham, Ala., he was quietly glued to his BlackBerry, thumbing his way through e-mails. He was mostly cheerful, according to those in the room. He reminisced about campaigns past with his daughters. He reviewed his schedule; he bantered with his wife, Callista; he settled on a purple...

    PAGO PAGO, American Samoa — Mitt Romney won the Republican caucus in American Samoa, picking up all nine delegates. About 70 Republicans in the U.S. territory located 2,300 miles south of Hawaii met in caucus Tuesday. The six delegates selected at the meeting and three superdelegates to the Republican National Convention all said they would support Romney. Falemao M. Pili, vice chairman of the local GOP and a delegate, says he believes Romney can fix the U.S. economy that extends to American Samoa. He says Romney can "turn this country around."

    Romney Holds Modest Lead Over Santorum In Illinois 3/13/2012 (RTTNews) - Front-runner Mitt Romney has a narrow lead over Rick Santorum among likely voters in the upcoming Illinois primary, a new survey says. The survey, taken ahead of the March 20 vote, found the former Massachusetts governor slightly ahead of Santorum, 35 percent to 31 percent in Illinois, according to a Chicago Tribune/WGEN-TV poll. Trailing far behind the top two are former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich at 12 percent and Texas Rep. Ron Paul at 7 percent. The poll also showed Romney doing well in Chicago's suburbs, where...

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The plodding Republican presidential nomination fight is grinding forward toward Puerto Rico — and a two-man race, with Rick Santorum ascendant and Mitt Romney vanquished in the Deep South. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, the former Georgia lawmaker whose Southern strategy stalled, was all but relegated to an asterisk in the contest even as he vowed to stay in it. “Now is the time to pull together,” Santorum declared to conservatives in Lafayette, La., after winning Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama and Mississippi, urging the party’s faithful to unite behind him to beat Romney. “We are...

    Rick Santorum has won the Republican primary in Alabama, NBC News is projecting with 31 percent of the vote reported. He leads Newt Gingrich in the state by 5 percentage points and Mitt Romney by 6 points. Early returns from urban areas that typically favor Romney, and are often slower to report their results, suggest the former Massachusetts governor cannot pick up enough ground to gain the lead later in the evening.

    Updated 9:55 p.m. -- Rick Santorum was projected to win the Alabama Republican primary as he, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich were locked in a three-way battle to win Mississippi's primary. Mitt Romney was left looking to Mississippi to achieve a feat he hadn’t yet accomplished this cycle – win in one of the Republican Party’s conservative strongholds – as results from the twin primaries in GOP strongholds trickled in Tuesday evening. Almost two hours after polls closed, the race in Mississippi was too close to call. A week after Super Tuesday, the Alabama and Mississippi primaries could determine whether...

    Conservatives had a good result tonight - I think they will get about 2/3 of the Alabama and Mississippi delegates. But it will soon be time for Newt to suspend his campaign and give Rick the momentum. I am giving Newt until 1 April to do this. I am still calm, but I plan on having an anxiety attack prior to 3 April if Newt is still in it. The winner-take-all states that day require Newt to depart. This is the best way to block Mittens, but it still won't give Rick half... But, and here is the kicker, I...

    In an email to reporters today, the Romney campaign rejected Rick Santorum's assertion that he could force a convention fight and win in Tampa, calling it "pure fantasy, or vanity, or both."The Romney operation is growing increasingly confident with their chances — even if Newt Gingrich drops out of the race to back Santorum, arguing that because not all of Gingrich's support will go to Santorum it means there are more delegates for Romney to pick up.Below is the email from the campaign: Good morning-Today is another election day and yet another day that our opponents will be unable to...
