Newt Gingrich's $500 check bounces for Utah ballot

Newt Gingrich insists his presidential campaign is going all the way to the GOP convention in Tampa. But first the candidate needs to get on the ballot in Utah.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Gingrich's $500 check to pay the filing fee has bounced. If the former House speaker doesn't pay up by April 20, the story says, his name won't appear on the ballot.

The Utah primary -- the last of the presidential nominating season -- is June 26.

From the Salt Lake newspaper story:

"Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas said a designated agent for the Gingrich campaign brought the filing papers and a check for $500 in March, but after the check was deposited, the state was notified by the bank that the check had bounced. He said the office has tried to contact the Gingrich campaign through the telephone number and email provided on the application, but have not received a response."

1. Gingrich think tank files for bankruptcy

The filing shows the group owes 50-99 creditors between $1 and $10 million. It reported assets of less than $100,000.


The center's website was down on Thursday, but a cached version described the group as a "high-impact collaboration of private and public sector leaders committed to creating a 21st Century Intelligent Health System."

Gingrich, who has been struggling for months in the polls, ended his involvement with the center in May 2011, before becoming a candidate for president.
Stefan Passantino, general counsel to the campaign and former counsel to The Gingrich Group, said that "the company was extraordinary successful while he was involved" and that the candidate provided excellent leadership.

"This in no way reflects on his ability to be a candidate or run a large organization. In fact it shows just the opposite, as it performed well under his leadership."

2. Gingrich Urges Romney To Drop Out So He Can Focus On General Election

RALEIGH, NC—Following Rick Santorum's announcement Tuesday that he would end his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, candidate Newt Gingrich called upon frontrunner Mitt Romney to drop out of the race so the former House speaker could concentrate on the general election. "While I respect my challenger's right to fight through to the bitter end, the time has now come to unite behind one man so we can take back the White House in November," said Gingrich, addressing a crowd of 35 supporters at the Raleigh County Public Library.


"My opponent should be congratulated on running a fine campaign. But I need him to swallow his pride, come back to reality, and tell all Republicans to throw their support behind Newt Gingrich as the next president of the United States." Gingrich noted that Romney's withdrawal would bolster Gingrich's fundraising efforts as he seeks to eliminate some of the $4.5 million in debt he has amassed thus far in his victorious campaign
