2012 Nevada Caucus Results
February 5, 2012 by staff
2012 Nevada Caucus Results, Newt Gingrich’s increasingly quixotic quest for the Republican presidential nomination will go on, even after he received a drubbing in Saturday night’s Nevada caucuses.
The former House speaker sought to dispel rumors that he would be dropping out of the race in a press conference that, befitting its location — the Palazzo hotel on the Las Vegas strip — was heavy on pompousness and show.
“Every primary day or caucus day,” a defiant Gingrich declared, “the Romney headquarters in Boston sends out the rumor that they believe I will withdraw, which is of course their greatest fantasy.”
Perhaps a bit of political gamesmanship was behind the rumors that Gingrich would drop out that surfaced late Saturday. But it’s not necessarily the campaign of Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, that is trying to turn the Republican primary into scripted fantasia. Gingrich may well keep campaigning until the Republican convention in Tampa. But sober-mindedanlyses don’t give him much, if any, shot at success.
The month of February, which brings with it a slate of primaries and caucuses that favor either Romney or Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), promises to be brutal for Gingrich. His campaign is reportedly low on cash. He has no formal infrastructure in place in most states and didn’t even make it on Virginia’s ballot. Pressed on all these points, however, his responses drifted between insolence and confusion.
