He was hoping for a bounce in the polls, but the only thing bouncing in Utah was Newt Gingrich's $500 application fee to get on the primary ballot, reports the Salt Lake City Tribune. Worse—when Utah officials tried to get in touch with Gingrich's local office, there was no response from the phone numbers or email addresses provided on the application. Gingrich has until April 20 to sort things out if he wants to get on the ballot there.
Gingrich has largely run a tight campaign (save for those multimillion dollar donations from Sheldon Adelson), and he Sunday admitted to using "a little bit" of his own money to offset the campaign's $4.5 million in debt, reports Politico. Other signs of Gingrich money problems include his health care think tank filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last week. But there's always Jimmy Kimmel's suggestion to pay Gingrich to just go away.
