The New York Times:
Mr. DeSantis [the campaign’s communications director] said Mr. Gingrich accepted that he could not win enough delegates to clinch the nomination before the convention. But the campaign believes that neither Mitt Romney nor Rick Santorum is likely to do so, either. In that case, Mr. DeSantis said, the campaign will enter a “tossup period” this summer.Lo que se propone hacer Gingrich es muy bizarro, es como volver a hace cuarenta años, cuando había candidatos muy serios que pasaban de las primarias, que entonces eran pocas, y montaban su campaña pensando en pelear por la candidatura en la convención.
“We’re going to make sure Newt is ready to win that 60-day period,” Mr. DeSantis said. “What we’re going to be doing is focus on a campaign strategy that takes it to Obama.”
(...) The idea, Mr. DeSantis said, is to persuade unpledged delegates and those who have backed another candidate to see Mr. Gingrich as the best challenger to face President Obama.
“We know that we will not get to 1,144 delegates by the convention,” Mr. DeSantis said. “But there’s a real possibility that Governor Romney won’t, either.”
(...) “You are going to see us be very happy for Governor Romney and Senator Santorum to be hitting each other while we go after Mr. Obama,” Mr. DeSantis said.
