(Newser) – Newt Gingrich knows he won't be president. But he's not dropping out of the race, because he's $4.5 million in debt and still needs to raise money. "You know, he's got a huge debt, he wants to keep spending, very presidential if you think about it," Jimmy Kimmel quipped last night, in a clip spotted by the Huffington Post.

Kimmel helpfully made Newt a new ad that's sure to rake in the dough. "For the last six months you've heard Newt Gingrich talk," the narrator intones. "Now, how much would you pay for him to shut up? This election there's only one candidate who promises to stop talking for $4.5 million. Newt Gingrich: Make it worth his while."
