Gingrich creditors nervous: Businesses and staffers owed money by former House speaker Newt Gingrich are worried that the soon-to-be-former presidential candidate isn’t good for the money.
Many were frustrated to see Gingrich continue to campaign (and spend) aggressively after his defeat was all but certain.
“They keep telling us, ‘We’ve got you covered, you will be paid.’ But I have my doubts. I really do,” sign company owner Vic Buttermore told ABC News.
Help may come soon; former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee have offered to help retire Gingrich’s debt.
And he’s not running again: Gingrich told USA Today, “I do not think in 2020 I’ll be a plausible candidate.”
