Newt Gingrich’s campaign for president was one heck of a ride. Now that it’s over, The Daily Beast takes a look back at some of the saddest photos of the former speaker.

Bombastic and often erratic, Newt Gingrich provided some of the best moments in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. There was that time he talked about colonizing the moon. There was the time he called for firing school janitors so that the students could take their jobs. And Gingrich rarely missed an opportunity to attack the media for what he saw as unfair bias.

But now, as his campaign winds to a halt, The Daily Beast takes a look back at some of the saddest photos from the former speaker’s run for the White House.
