Billy Wilkins, Newt Gingrich’s South Carolina chairman, tells National Review Online that the Gingrich campaign is not pushing Rick Perry to leave the race.
“I don’t know of any such efforts on our part,” Wilkins says. “Of course, people are leaving the Perry campaign and coming over to us voluntarily. But as far as any efforts on our part, to suggest to Perry to get out of the race, we’re not doing that. That’s a decision that he and his advisers will have to make.”
