We may see multi-adulterer moralist Newt Gingrich exit the GOP Clown Car soon. With all the bluster about making it to the convention and being some sort of anti-Romney messiah sounding tired, one of his backers is ready to close the bank. Raw Story:
Billionaire casino owner and major donor to the Newt Gingrich (R-GA) super PAC Winning Our Future has indicated that the Gingrich 2012 campaign’s days are numbered, in spite of the former Speaker of the House’s avowal to stay in the race. In an interview with The Jewish Journal, Adelson said that while he doesn’t care for former Massachusetts Republican Governor Mitt Romney or ex-Senator Rick Santorum(R-PA), he feels that Gingrich has reached “the end of his line.”
…When prodded by the Journal reporter, however, Adelson conceded that he feels as though Gingrich is “at the end of his line,” because “mathematically he can’t get anywhere near the numbers” that he would need to secure the presidential nomination.
Raw Story spoke to Rick Tyler, a representative of Winning Our Future, who remains sanguine about Speaker Gingrich’s chances of winning the nomination. Adelson has donated more than $15 million to the PAC, but when asked if the Jewish Journal interview signals the end of Adelson’s willingness to provide funds for the committee, Tyler declined to speak for donors, declaring that they “speak for themselves.”
Well, they may be
bailing speaking soon enough.
