It's been a tough campaign season for Newt Gingrich.
While the former Speaker of the House had a strong start in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, he's been plagued by low showings and campaign staff strife. Rumors are also placing the amount owed by the Gingrich campaign somewhere around $4 million.
It seems that Newt is dropping hints that he'll dropping out of the race soon.
It all started before Tuesday's primary when a campaign spokesperson told reporters that Newt would be recessing his presidential run after Tuesday's primary – especially if the campaign "got their butt kicked in Delaware," which it did. And, in a speech to supporters, Newt explained that he would need to reevaluate his role in helping make sure that "Barack Obama is one-term president."
But, don't count on hearing Newt's "out" right away.
In the same speech, he said that the campaign "will be here through the week" and he's scheduled some events in North Carolina through Sunday -- including meeting donors, throwing out the first pitch in a college baseball game, and visiting a zoo (which doesn't seem like such a good idea considering the last time he went to a zoo).
