Viguerie to Newt: 'Be kingmaker, not spoiler'

Longtime conservative activist Richard Viguerie has been friends with Newt Gingrich for more than 30 years, but now he says it’s time for Newt to bow out of the race and consolidate the conservative vote behind Rick Santorum.

“I think Gingrich doesn’t have the support at the grass-roots level that Rick Santorum does … you can’t win your party’s nomination for president without a base and Santorum’s base is the conservative movement,” Viguerie told WND.

Viguerie explains why it’s clear to him that Newt and not Santorum should leave the campaign and how quickly Gingrich should make this move.

“If he got out now he could be a kingmaker, if he stays in he’ll be a spoiler.”

Viguerie also explains to us why Romney’s delegate lead is not insurmountable and why it’s wrong to assume conservatives would flock to the polls for Romney in order to defeat Obama in November.

“Running a content-free campaign, like Romney has done, is a prescription for a big loss in November,” said Viguerie.
