Gin­grich says Delaware could shake up the race

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

WILMINGTON | For­mer House Speaker Newt Gin­grich said Mon­day that Delaware’s small size could pro­vide him the op­por­tu­nity to pick up the state’s 17 win­ner-take-all del­e­gates on April 24 and shake up the GOP pres­i­den­tial pri­mary race.

“I think Delaware is a great op­por­tu­nity for us be­cause it is the size state where a can­di­date with limited money can re­ally make an im­pact by per­sonal con­tact,” Mr. Gin­grich told re­porters dur­ing the first visit to Delaware by a con­tender in this year’s GOP pres­i­den­tial race. “I think that win­ning Delaware would be part of re­set­ting the whole race.” Schaum­ber, now a la­bor re­la­tions con­sul­tant, also did not respond to an email and phone call re­quest­ing com­ment. part­ner,” the Re­pub­li­can gov­er­nor said. “Much of this agree­ment is pretty far along. We need to make some re­views. Both the City Coun­cil and mayor need to make some re­views.”

Sny­der spokes­woman Ger­a­lyn Lasher said the two sides “could be a para­graph or two” away from a deal.

Later Mon­day, a fi­nan­cial re­view team con­cluded Detroit is in “se­vere fi­nan­cial stress” but stopped short of ap­point­ing an emer­gency man­ager.
