Fox News Terminates Contracts With Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum

Both failed to make an announcement by Fox's May 1 deadline

Fox News has terminated its contracts with both former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., sources told Politico. The network had given the two contributors, both of whom have been publicly flirting with presidential runs, a May 1 deadline to announce an official bid, but the cutoff passed without either man throwing his hat in the ring.
