Is It Over Yet? Gingrich Hints at an Alliance – Flailing presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says he’s been talking with Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum about the best way to beat President Obama, but the non-Romney candidates aren’t showing signs of dropping out. Gingrich told a Milwaukee radio station today that “we have all three been talking with each other all during the process because we all three understand that the number-one mission is to defeat Barack Obama.” “So I talked to Santorum recently, and I think that’s just a part of the process,” Gingrich said. Gingrich and Romney met last week in New Orleans, though the former House speaker has denied that the conversation was about making some sort of deal. http://abcn.ws/H7FYq8   (Matt Negrin)
