Gingrich Video Gives ‘Insider, Advance Notice’ That He’s Ending Campaign

Newt Gingrich is exiting the Presidential race the same way he entered it: by pre-announcing his announcement about dropping out.

The former House speaker released a video today telling viewers that he will be “suspending” his campaign tomorrow. Very strangely, he characterizes the sharing of this info as “insider, advance notice.” A person sharing information with a special someone usually does so with a whisper in the ear rather than a megaphone online. Moreover, the media has been covering his pending campaign suspension since last Wednesday.

Both Gingrich and Rick Santorum are looking for assurances from Mitt Romney before giving him their endorsement. Santorum would like a guarantee about Romney’s conservative bona fides; Gingrich wants help with the $4.3 million in debt it’s said he’s accumulated and assistance with reputation repair, Fox News says.

*Update, 5/2: He’s officially done.
