Gingrich's chances are as closed as his eyes
The implosion continues
The Pawlenty campaign just announced that former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue (R) -- who was serving as Newt Gingrich's national campaign co-chair -- will now be endorsing Pawlenty.
Pawlenty's campaign manager, Nick Ayers, was a former top aide to Perdue.
Said Perdue, in a statement released by the Pawlenty campaign:
Tim Pawlenty is a great man, he was a phenomenal governor, and he is the person I now believe stands the greatest chance of defeating President Obama. He is the only candidate who has laid out a real plan to grow the American economy, and his track record in Minnesota is proof he's the right man for the job.
Let's not forget that Newt's troubles began when he opposed the Republican plan to effectively end Medicare. That's the real story here: if you don't support ending Medicare, you don't have a shot in the GOP.
