Five Republicans have filed the necessary papers and $500 fee to qualify for the June 26 Utah presidential primary election, but with Rick Santorum dropping out of the race Tuesday, only four will be on the ballot.
Or possibly three.
Newt Gingrich’s check bounced.
Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas said a designated agent for the Gingrich campaign brought the filing papers and a check for $500 in March, but the state was notified by the bank that the check had bounced. He said the office has tried to contact the Gingrich campaign through the telephone number and email provided on the application, but has not received a response.
Recently, the state sent a certified letter to the campaign, stating that if the fee isn’t paid by April 20, Gingrich will be disqualified and will not be on the ballot.
Newt go home, nice try but it was over a month ago.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

Newt is done, folks. The preordained match-up between Obama and Romney has officially begun. Everything between now and Romney's official nomination is but a sideshow. It's a done deal and has been for months."The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

I still like Newt but he has overstayed his welcome in this primary.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
