The big day finally came on Wednesday after so much unnecessary build-up.
Newt Gingrich officially left the race to be the Republican nominee for president of the United States. It was an extremely long overdue suspension of his campaign that left much of the free world wondering why he was still in it.
Gingrich walks away with over $4 million in campaign debt which is going to take some serious brown-nosing to pay off. Because Newt’s campaign is “suspended” and not “ended” his run, he can still legally collect donations toward the debt.
Observers also expect that he will hit up Republican cash cow Mitt Romney for some other campaign debt relief.
