Gingrich suspended his campaign in May, but it seems there was a part of him that was still pining for that moon colony. He only released his 142 delegates on Tuesday, saying in a letter, "it is time now for all Republicans to come together in common purpose to defeat President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden." He also urged them to "join Callista and me in strongly supporting the Romney-Ryan ticket," ensuring that they'll be voting for the same guys the rest of the party has been planning to nominate for several months now.
