Gingrich Coming to Arlington to Suspend Presidential Campaign

Newt Gingrich will come to Arlington tomorrow to officially end his presidential run, the National Journal reported today.

In a video message thanking supporters, Gingrich confirmed he’ll suspend his campaign at a press conference on Wednesday. His website shows the announcement will take place at 3:00 p.m., at the Hilton in Ballston (950 N. Stafford Street).

Arlington County Police will be assisting with traffic control outside the hotel, where a number of news networks are expected to be broadcasting live, according to ACPD spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

Although presidential candidate Mitt Romney is also scheduled be in Virginia tomorrow, he’s not expected to appear at the press conference to accept an endorsement from Gingrich, according to ABC News.

Romney is in Arlington for a fundraiser tonight at the Ritz-Carlton in Pentagon City.
