This is the way the Newt campaign ends

Our take: Despite promising to take his campaign all the way to the Republican National Convention, Newt Gingrich has conceded that Mitt Romney is the most likely Republican nominee. The Atlantic Wire ran a story outlining Gingrich's thought as his campaign winds down.

For a moment, Newt Gingrich could picture an amazing improbable victory for himself. But even Newt thinks that is not to be. Gingrich is but a shadow of the anti-Mitt Romney warrior he was only months ago. A couple weeks ago he said he was going all the way to the Republican National Convention in Tampa; on Sunday he admitted Romney is "far and away the most likely Republican nominee."
