Although for Newt Gingrich things didn’t work out that well over the past few weeks, this Republican candidate remains confident his message is stronger than that of rivals Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. And even with downturn in support, Newt Gingrich wows to remain in race.
It’s nice when you get to see such a determined candidate in the presidential bid, but at the same time maybe Newt Gingrich should ask himself whether he’s gone too far. The truth is that the present Republican presidential nomination race has been full of surprises and major changes are not that unheard of. But it’s quite unlikely that Newt Gingrich will be back on top. In fact, even Mitt Romney should ask himself whether Rick Santorum actually got the best of him.
But getting back to the former House of Representatives Speaker, Newt Gingrich stated earlier this week that his determination is what will keep him in race, despite recent primary losses to Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.
Newt Gingrich told reporters at an event near Los Angeles: “I think my ideas are much bolder than Santorum or Romney’s. I think my ideas are much clearer and more specific and I have to focus on communicating those ideas. Let’s see how it plays out”.
On top of that, the conservative magazine National Review published a material suggesting that Newt Gingrich should step aside and endorse Santorum. The recommendation comes only weeks after Gingrich himself asked both Rick Santorum and Ron Paul to endorse him in the fight against Mitt Romney.
Gingrich dismissed the National Review article as silly and emphasized he has no plans to back down. Also, at a tea party group in Pasadena, Gingrich said about Santorum’s lucky strike in Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado:
“He had a really good Tuesday and suddenly the same people who said I was dead in June are saying, ‘See, I told you so’. I have a message for them – I’m still here”.
The Super Tuesday primary in Georgia and Ohio are essential for Newt Gingrich to remain a viable candidate. But before that, Newt Gingrich has to have a positive result at February 22 televised debate in Arizona.
