    Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight threw his support behind Mitt Romney today, telling a crowd of hundreds at a local restaurant that Newt Gingrich "falls short" of having the characteristics needed to run the White House. "Governor Romney is a man of faith, honor, love, and truth," said Voight. "These are the first very important qualities a president must have. He is strong, honest, and wants to bring the country back to its exceptional place, where we have been for hundreds and hundreds of years, until President Obama decided to follow his father's footsteps and take us to socialism."...
  • Newt May Score Upset Win in Delaware

    (Newser) – Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, and Delaware hold their Republican primaries today and while many observers have already heard the fat lady sing for Newt Gingrich, there may still be a twist or two left in the race. Gingrich has been spending a lot of time in Delware and he may be able to rally conservatives and jolt Mitt Romney by snatching a surprise primary win like the one Christine O'Donnell scored in 2010, Politico finds. Gingrich—who has had more penguin bites than primary wins since taking Georgia seven weeks ago—needs five wins to get on the...

    News Observer ^ | April 23, 2012 | robchristensen
    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich plans a heavy campaign schedule in North Carolina this week, puncturing talk that he was suspending his campaign here. Gingrich, accompanied by his wife Callista for the first time here, plans to hit the Republican-rich Piedmont area of the state this week, as he campaigns for the May 8 primary. They are paying homage to several iconic Tar Heel figures -- Billy Graham and Richard Petty. And as a big fan of zoos, Gingrich has also set a aside two hours to visit the N.C. Zoo in Asheboro. The schedule suggests that Gingrich is doubling...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Mitt Romney may be the presumptive GOP nominee against Democratic President Barack Obama, but Republican primaries will still be held in New York and elsewhere tomorrow. Guy Molinari, Romney's state campaign director, said the Romney forces are taking nothing for granted, looking to battle Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich across the Empire State, where 95 delegates are at stake. "We have to redouble our efforts and go for a clean sweep," said Molinari. "We want to win every congressional district." And that includes Staten Island. Even though Molinari said informal tracking shows Romney is "very strong"...
  • Adelsons give Gingrich super PAC another $5 million

    The Washington Post ^ | April 23, 2012 | Aaron Blake
    .....many assumed the Adelsons had stopped funding the former House speaker’s campaign. The super PAC spent just $1.5 million in March, even though the month featured several Southern primaries in which Gingrich ostensibly could have performed well. But the fresh infusion of Adelson money came in after Super Tuesday on March 6, after primaries a week later in Alabama and Mississippi (where Gingrich placed a respectable second and the super PAC spent about $1 million combined) and just a few days before Louisiana, where the super PAC did spend some money. Because of the late nature of the donation, Winning...

    This is only 5 days late but necessary to get out. Newt Gingrich invaded the Dallas area last Monday to meet with grassroots leaders and media. Want to know what he said BEHIND closed doors? It ain’t over - is what happened. First, I owe an apology to Santorum supporter and long time Twitter friend @Malvenue for being particularly harsh in the face of his defeatist attitude that “it’s all over” and Romney is the nominee. That is both FACTUALLY wrong and wrong as an attitude for any true patriotic conservative. It is FAR from over. No one has reached...

    The Washington Times ^ | April 22, 2012 | Jennifer Harper
    With 21 campaign events scheduled this week, persistent Republican hopeful Newt Gingrich does not appear willing to appease those who want him out of the presidential race. With wife Callista, Mr. Gingrich embarks on intensely local appearances in Delaware and North Carolina: he’ll frequent regional GOP luncheons, visit a library, an azalea festival and elementary schools. He’ll throw out the first pitch at a Gardner-Webb University baseball game and brave an appearance at the North Carolina Zoo — which has puffins but no penguins. The candidate was nipped by the latter last week during a zoo appearance; but that is...

    The Washington Times ^ | April 22, 2012 | Joseph Curl, covered the White House and politics for a decade for The Washington Times
    You know you’re running a lousy presidential campaign when you get bitten by a penguin. Newt Gingrich, still in the race only because a deep-pocket casino magnate is funding his pathetic run, was campaigning last week for the zoo-animal vote in St. Louis — on a private tour, of course — and got nipped by a Magellanic penguin. Oh, if only he’d taken a jaunt through Big Cat Country or fed the crocodiles in the Herpetarium: Perhaps we’d all be out of our misery now. The Newt’s presidential campaign has got to be one of the worst ever run in...

    UPI ^ | April 22, 2012 | NICOLE DEBEVEC
    Mitt Romney is dominating in northeastern states conducting primaries Tuesday, particularly since Rick Santorum has left the race, observers note. Santorum, who announced he was suspending his campaign two weeks ago, had seen his once-huge lead in Pennsylvania shrink steadily and had said winning the Keystone State was key to his campaign continuing. That said, Romney was expected to claim a huge number of delegates from Delaware, Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island, even with Santorum in the race. Nothing's happened to change that expectation, except to possibly solidify it.'s delegate count showed Romney with 656, Santorum with 272,...

    Rick Santorum, the winner of Alabama's Republican presidential primary, hasn't released his 22 Alabama delegates to support another candidate, but delegates said they expect to unite behind Mitt Romney if he locks up the GOP nomination. ....Santorum won Alabama's GOP primary March 13, picking up 22 delegates, compared with 13 for Newt Gingrich and 12 for Romney. Even though Santorum has suspended his campaign, the rules of the Alabama Republican Party bind his delegates to him until he releases them. Dean participated in a conference call with Santorum on Monday, during which the former Pennsylvania senator told delegates he has...

    “Conservatives believe in the classical American definition of fairness – that every American be treated equally under the law… “Governor Romney’s tax proposal violates that principle by giving politicians the power to carve out exceptions in the law for people of certain incomes. Furthermore, it sets the stage for future tax increases, as politicians will continually try to decrease the income threshold where citizens will no longer be able to avail themselves of the deductions.”

    The political spotlight has shifted to Pennsylvania. To Lancaster County, specifically. The stars have come out for the Republican party -- at least, some of the stars. Presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich addressed a big GOP fundraiser, one week before primary election day. Many of the 1,200 attendees of the dinner are still undecided about who will get their vote. They heard two different speeches, and one political analyst says one person missing could have made huge gains for Mitt Romney. The anticipation was high for many Republicans in the Lancaster Convention Center. They knew each candidate would...

    KINGS MOUNTAIN — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich will bring his plans for economic recovery to the proving ground next week. The former House speaker is visiting the 238 Cherokee Street Tavern in downtown Kings Mountain to meet Robert Bolin, the restaurant’s owner and an entrepreneur who employs a combined 45 people in four business ventures. Bolin says high business taxes are hobbling the economy. “It costs me 35 percent of the profits every year,” Bolin said. “As a business owner, it’s one of the biggest problems we’re constantly facing. If we could control more of that money and I...

    LANCASTER, Pa. - Two of the Republican candidates for president are in Pennsylvania a week ahead of the state's primary election. Mitt Romney, the GOP's all-but-certain presidential nominee, and Newt Gingrich, are scheduled to speak at the Republican Committee of Lancaster County’s spring event in Lancaster on Tuesday evening. Rick Santorum, who suspended his campaign last week, has canceled his appearance. Santorum, a former Pennsylvania U.S. senator, hasn't hinted whether he'll eventually endorse Romney, but said he'll say soon how he'll continue to press for conservatism in politics.

    Republicans gone missin’ again – in 2010 they received an injection of new blood energetic men and women ready to “take back our Country. But, the Old Republican Establishment gave them a grand welcome and shot them in the foot every time they stepped forward with a substantial idea that would strengthen our Nation’s foundation. What the freshmen didn’t know is the Old Republican Establishment has been around for a long time and they’re happy basking in the sun, playing golf and living high on the hog off of taxpayer’s money. They actually black balled the freshman stars like Paul...

    RICHARDSON (CBSDFW) – Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich says he’s not leaving the Presidential race anytime soon. “I’m the tortoise in this race,” Gingrich says. “I’ll just keep coming forward and I’m still here.” Before 75 supporters in a packed Richardson restaurant along Central Expressway Monday afternoon, Gingrich sounded upbeat. He told the town hall meeting, “I certainly felt a lot more encouraged by donors than discouraged by the elite media.” But he’s facing an uphill climb. Jack Fink: “Mitt Romney is on his way to the nomination, mathematically you can’t win, so what’s your rationale for staying in...
