In news that we already knew before it was news, former Speaker of the House and perennial divorcee Newt Gingrich has officially dropped his bid to become the next president of the United States.
Gingrich made the announcement at a Wednesday press conference.
In a video concession posted on the internet Tuesday by the Gingrich campaign, Newt thanked supporters for fueling his long-shot candidacy and called his bid “a terrific campaign.”
Gingrich won only two primaries – Georgia and South Carolina.
But it's not all sunshine and roses for Gingrich. His campaign is some $4 million in the hole, according to multiple media outlets.
A quick visit to the Gingrich campaign website shows a plea for contributions. “Thank You. But we still need your support,” his website reads.
Presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney called Gingrich a "friend" in a Tweet following Gingrich's announcement.
In the end, all there is to say is so long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu Mr. Gingrich.
