As much as it pains me I find myself in agreement with Quin Hillyer. It would probably be prudent if Newt Gingrich drops out of the race along with Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann.
But I don’t think Newt should drop out just yet.
Given his animosity towards Mitt Romney, Newt is no doubt salivating at the opportunity to lay his gloves on Romney during the two New Hampshire debates scheduled for Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Unless he finishes in double digits, methinks Newt will drop out after New Hampshire and throw his support Santorum’s way once the attention focuses on South Carolina.
UPDATE: I am watching Newt speak. He praised Santorum for running a positive campaign “unlike other candidates” (a not so subtle dig at Romney.) While Newt also congratulated Ron Paul he also called his foreign policy “a stunningly dangerous for the survival of the United States.” It looks like that Newt will be laying his gloves on both Paul and Romney this weekend.
