Newt Gingrich won't appear on Missouri ballot - latimes.com
Newt Gingrich may be a top-tier contender in the latest polls, but he won't be contending at all in Missouri's Republican presidential primary in February.
The former House speaker, who is putting a campaign organization together on the fly, failed to qualify for the contest in the Show Me State.
According to the Missouri Secretary of State's office, Gingrich did not file the necessary papers as of Tuesday's 5 p.m. deadline. That means his name will not be on the Feb. 7 ballot.
