Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich says he will stay in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Gingrich's declaration was reported by various media after a campaign event in Los Angeles.
National Review had called for Gingrich to drop out of the race. My perception is that NRO's preference for the nomination is former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
The US Report no longer receives campaign statements from Gingrich's organization. We'll bring you updates on his campaign when we can. We have requested reinstatement several times; we have no idea why we were removed. Having received no response, we have stopped requesting access.
I have personally expressed my support for Gingrich in previous postings.
Newsmax has a brief story on Gingrich's statement; that story is sourced to the Associated Press.
