The Rubble of Newt 2012

Newt Gingrich has announced on his facebook page that his campaign will start fresh in Los Angeles on Sunday.  This is after he returned from a vacation in Greece in time to have his campaign manager and several other key aides resign over the direction of his campaign.

Gingrich's campaign staffers throw in the towel

Gingrich continues to travel through key early states doing a mixture of campaigning and conservative rallying, and he maintains a strong following through his weekly blogs.  However, it has been a rough campaign since Gingrich tried to distance himself from the Paul Ryan plan and made comments about Obamacare’s individual mandate and personal responsibility that were quickly taken out of context.  Many wrote him off at that point without waiting for an explanation or attempting to square his statements with the consistency of his 18 year anti-mandate record.

A fresh start will help Gingrich, but it may take more of a miracle to get his campaign moving in the right direction: upward in the polls.
