Newt’s Campaign Bounces $500 Check To Get On Utah Ballot
Newt Gingrich, who has long fashioned himself the only intellectual, conservative, and fiscal conservative (and only one who can beat Barack Obama in the election), has once again found himself in financial trouble.
Last week, the health care think tank he founded declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
In fact, his campaign is $4.5 million in debt and can’t raise funds sufficient to bail the campaign out.
He can’t even keep the books straight, but thinks he can fix the nation’s financial problems? His campaign is a mess, and not even Rick Santorum quitting the race (sorry, it’s quitting the race, not suspending it - though it still means Santorum can raise funds and can use the money for other purposes) improves his chances against presumptive nominee Mitt Romney.
At this rate, Gingrich’s going to be flying dog poop on a cargo plane to Hong Kong if he’s lucky.
