Gingrich officially suspends GOP Presidential campaign

Washington, Thu, 03 May 2012 ANI

Washington, May 3 (ANI): US Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has officially dropped out of the White House race.

Delivering a roughly 20-minute address from Virginia, Gingrich vowed to remain an "active citizen."

"Today, I am suspending the campaign, but suspending the campaign does not mean suspending citizenship. Callista and I are committed to be active citizens. We owe it to America," Fox News quoted Gingrich, as saying.

The former speaker of the House of Representatives also declined to endorse Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination.

According to the report, Gingrich also had trouble raising money to stay in the race. His campaign is nearly 4 million dollars in debt.

In 1994, Gingrich helped Republicans retake the House after 40 years. But he has since been criticized, including this year, by some of those House Republicans for lacking leadership skills. (ANI)
