Report: Gingrich To Suspend Campaign

Fox News is reporting that Newt Gingrich is preparing to bring an end to his Presidential campaign:

Newt Gingrich plans to formally suspend or end his presidential campaign next Tuesday, senior Gingrich aides told Fox News.

Gingrich will “more than likely” endorse Mitt Romney at that time, a source said.

Why would he wait until next Tuesday? Your guess is as good as mine.

Update: CNN is independently confirming the Fox report.

    Since he hasn’t campaigned in weeks, there’s probably no hurry.

    I guess “suspend” is a face saving way of saying “got his ass kicked”…
