    Controversial San Francisco radio host Michael Savage has offered Newt Gingrich $1 million to drop out of the Republican primary race.

    The conservative radio posted a message on his website Monday offering Gingrich the money if he would drop out of the race in the next 72 hours.

    "The Republican presidential field has come down to two candidates who have a real chance of getting the nomination: Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney," Savage wrote on his site. "While it’s true that Romney is not as strong a conservative as many would like him to be, the most pressing issue before America today is defeating Barack Obama. And that is something Newt Gingrich cannot do."

    Savage goes on to criticize Gingrich for believing in global warming, the promotion of amnesty for illegal aliens, his multiple infidelity issues and more.

    The host of the nation's third-highest rated radio program urged Gingrich to "take the money."
