The Long Goodbye Of Newt's Presidential Campaign Continues


Lawrence O'Donnell took a look back at the presidential campaign of Newt Gingrich during his Rewrite segment now that he's finally going to officially drop out of the race and noted that "Newt is now the first, and no doubt the last historian to refer to the Gingrich presidential campaign as 'a terrific campaign.'"

I guess this means Gingrich is going to quit bilking the taxpayers out of their money to pay for his Secret Service protection. He'll have to finish his book tour without it.

Gingrich Releases Thank-You Video:

The latest in Newt Gingrich’s drawn-out exit from the Republican presidential primary is a goodbye video titled, “Thank You To All Of Our Supporters.” Though news that Gingrich will drop out of the race is almost a week old, Gingrich says in the video that he wants to give his supporters “insider advance notice” that he will be suspending his campaign on Wednesday.

Gingrich calls his suporters “vital” and tells them, “we’re going to continue out there on the road, both Callista and I will be talking, campaigning, making speeches, doing everything we can to help defeat Barack Obama.”

Gingrich will officially announce the suspension of his campaign Wednesday in Virginia.
