Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will end his presidential bid on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., sources tell CNN.
Previous reports said Gingrich would likely quit the race on Tuesday.
He is expected to express his support for likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney. The two spoke by phone last week, a Gingrich spokesman told CNN.
The decision to hold the event this week was due to logistical reasons, sources told CNN last week.
