Newt Gingrich was reportedly set to lose his Secret Service detail Thursday night, after he officially announced that he’d be dropping out of the race next week. The good news is that taxpayers will get to keep their $40,000 a day. The bad news is that Newt may have to defend himself against highly threatening college newspaper reporters from now on.
