Over a week after the news broke he would be ending his presidential bid and months after he had any chance in hell of actually winning the Republican nomination, Newt Gingrich officially announced his departure from the presidential campaign this afternoon. Mr.Gingrich made his exit with a speech in which he signaled his support for his former rival, Mitt Romney.
“This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history,” he said.
Ydanis Rodriguez told The Politicker he is getting rid of his spokesman, David Segal, after the New York Post published a story revealing Mr. Segal spent six months in federal prison and four months on house arrest after attempting to burn down an army recruitment center in The Bronx.
“He is a very hardworking person during the time that he’s been in my office,” Mr. Rodriguez said. “I didn’t know about any crime that he did or that he spent time in jail in the past and he’s being relieved from my staff.”
