Is Newt Gingrich’s Campaign On Life Support?


Within the past week, Newt Gingrich has began charging for photos with himself and laid off a third of his staff, including his Chief of Staff. This comes as a new poll shows six in ten Republicans want Newt Gingrich to get out of the race. The difference between this and the previous mass-leaving of the Gingrich campaign is that Newt Gingrich laid off the people. Last time, the top staff decided to leave. Financial reports show that Newt Gingrich’s campaign is running low on much-needed funds. His campaign is holding debt.¬†The Center for Responsible Politics records show that Newt Gingrich has about seven thousand dollars more in debt than cash in hand. Newt Gingrich’s campaign says that they are refocusing on online instead of campaign events. They say they are doing this to target delegates. Some estimations show that Newt Gingrich has about 12% of the delegates needed. The focus on online events, however, may make it hard to get the fifty dollars for candidate photos.
