Gingrich Not Suspending Campaign- Future Campaign Stops Confirmed

By Susan Duclos

Despite speculation from a few outlets as to whether Newt Gingrich would be suspending his presidential campaign because he chose to schedule a press avail for 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm PT, in the Bellini Ballroom # 2001-2102 at Venetian/Palazzo Congress Center, instead of the usual after caucus party, Gingrich's schedule for February 6th through the 10th has been confirmed, via email, and includes stops in Colorado, Minnesota and Ohio.

Previous statements by Gingrich made it obvious that he had no intention of dropping out of the GOP presidential race, but in politics, speculation runs rampant when anything is done that is not considered the norm.

On Fox News, Gingrich hinted at a potential path toward winning the nomination, saying he hoped to be "even with or slightly ahead" of Romney in total delegates by April 3.

"We're working our way toward Super Tuesday," Gingrich said to Van Susteren. "And we think we'll do very, very well on Super Tuesday, and then in Alabama and Mississippi the following week. And then we think we will clean up in Texas on the 3rd of April.'

The Gingrich campaign also spent part of caucus day, today, meeting with approximately 60 donors, including Sheldon Adelson, who has been in the news recently when he donated $5 million to the pro-Gingrich SuperPAC, Winning Our Future, followed by another $5 million donation by his wife Miriam.
