The End of the Road: Gingrich Will Announce His Exit Wednesday

More

The former Speaker's roller-coaster presidential campaign is due to come to a final stop with an announcement in Arlington, Virginia.

Newt Gingrich thanked supporters on his campaign website on Tuesday with details of where (the Hilton in Arlington) and when (3 p.m. Wednesday) he will officially suspend his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

Gingrich said in the video that he will continue on the road, making speeches in an effort to defeat President Obama.

"Because of your help and your support, we were able to put up a terrific campaign, and I want you to know that Callista and I are both very grateful to everybody across the country," he said.

"It will be with great thoughts of those who were side by side all these months," Gingrich added. "I want you to know that without you, none of this would have been possible."

The announcement will take place at 3 p.m. at the Hilton in Arlington, Va.
