Gingrich Staffer Outlines Three Possible Scenarios Going Forward

Gingrich campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond told Yahoo News today that his boss won’t exit the race tonight and that no matter what happens, they will continue on to campaign in North Carolina this week.

“A win in Delaware builds financial and grassroots momentum going into North Carolina — combined with the ABC news report that Winning our Future has $5 million to spend on TV in North Carolina could be the beginning of a chain of wins through DE, NC, KY, WV,” Hammond said. “Then into a battle royal in Texas and California.”

The Gingrich spokesman then went on to outline the campaign’s three possible scenarios for moving forward, suggesting that even a narrow loss in Delaware may be enough fuel to keep the campaign’s fire burning into May:

Three scenarios:

1.    Doomsday — We do poorly in Delaware, Gingrich will keep his campaign schedule in North Carolina but reassess with supporters whether or not there is a path forward.

2.    Middle ground —  a razor thin win for Romney in Delaware could show cracks in the armor and coalesce a conservative coalition of supporters behind Newt.

3.    Break in the Dam — A win in Delaware builds financial and grassroots momentum going into North Carolina — combined with the ABC news report that Winning our Future has $5 million to spend on TV in North Carolina could be the beginning of a chain of wins through DE, NC, KY, WV…then into a battle royal in Texas and California.

    If Gingrich drops out that still leaves Romney. I still have this urge to cheer on the doomsday scenario.
