A bombshell interview with Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife set to air tonight could catapult Ron Paul into a shock second placed finish in South Carolina and confirm the Congressman as Mitt Romney’s main rival.
The interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s wife of 18 years, “could end her ex-husband’s career,” according to a Drudge Report exclusive.
Despite a “civil war” erupting within ABC News over whether or not to air the interview before Saturday’s primary, the broadcast will go out tonight on Nightline, less than 48 hours before SC voters head to the polls.
Gingrich is set to hold a press conference today during which he will try to engage in damage control.
With current polls showing Gingrich in second place behind Romney, with Ron Paul and Rick Santorum virtually tied in third, any collapse in Gingrich’s support on the back of the interview would directly benefit the candidates immediately behind him in the polls.
