Just coming across the Fox News wire:
Newt Gingrich plans to formally suspend or end his presidential campaign next Tuesday, senior Gingrich aides told Fox News.
Gingrich will “more than likely” endorse Mitt Romney at that time, a source said.
Well, this is it, folks. Assuming this report from “senior aides” is accurate, Mitt Romney is for all intents and purposes our nominee now. Getting to the numbers, and then the nomination at the convention, are mere formalities at this point.
