Maybe with another day of reflection, Newt Gingrich has decided that it's just not worth wasting a beautiful summer on a doomed presidential campaign? Nope! In an e-mail to his supporters today, he reiterates his intention to "endure" the "the rigors of campaigning for public office." But, he can't do it alone. "This is your campaign," he says.
