Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has formally closed the curtain on his Presidential campaign, throwing his support behind Mitt Romney after campaigning against him for months.
FOX News Radio's Jill Nado reports from Washington:
Newt Gingrich had once touted himself as the most conservative guy on the campaign trail. but at a news conference in Arlington, Virginia - just a few miles from the White House - he says he's stepping aside for presumptive nominee Mitt Romney. Gingrich says he gets asked if Romney is conservative enough.
(Gingrich) "And my answer's simple: Compared to Barack Obama? You know, this is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan."
Gingrich says that he's going to continue to work to defeat President Obama.
(Gingrich) "This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical leftist President in American history."
Gingrich's campaign wraps up with about $4 million dollars worth of debt.
