Looks like people in South Carolina had better things to do this morning. LOLz!
Newt Gingrich was SUPPOSED to give a speech at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Charleston, SC this morning…but he cancelled after only 25 people showed up!
The most embarrassing part? The room reserved for Newt's speech holds 800 PEOPLE! Ouch!
"The campaign came to a mutual agreement with the organizers that based on attendance, we would go ahead and spend more time with the children of Charleston at the children's hospital."
And here's what press liaison for the conference Erin Callanan had to say about the cancellation:
"We're disappointed but we wish him well in the rest of his candidacy. He's a presidential candidate. It's what comes with the schedule. You've got to be flexible."
