Shoestring

Gingrich Campaign Bounces Check

Newt Gingrich said his campaign was on a shoestring budget, but this is pretty bad. The candidate may not appear on the ballot for Utah’s June primary after a $500 check from his campaign bounced. A Utah election official said they tried to get in contact with the Gingrich campaign but were unable to do so. Gingrich previously acknowledged that his campaign is $4.5 million in debt. Yesterday, after Santorum bowed out, Gingrich sent an email to supporters saying he was “the last conservative standing.”
