Moments ago, Newt Gingrich announced the suspension of his presidential run. Gingrich thanked his family, supporters, and the over 179,000 donors who helped make his campaign possible.

He said that “suspending the campaign, does not mean suspending citizenship.”

He spoke of the race as it currently stands between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, saying, “This is not choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan. This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history.”
