GOP establishment wants Newt in race because of PaulSubmitted by jay0718 on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 11:06
Why is Newt still running? He's already made it clear that he will support Mitt Romney and he recently told a group of New York state Republicans that he's staying in "to articulate big themes and big ideas." Huh? Since he also recently bounced a $500 check, it is very likely his campaign is bleeding cash. As I theorized two weeks ago, I believe the Republican establishment does not want a two man race between Paul and Romney, which could be the reason Gingich is staying in the race. The chances of Paul winning the nomination are slim to none, but he would be in a better delegate situation and would gain more media attention if Newt dropped out.
