Newt Gingrich holds a rally at the Vintage Motor Club in Concord, North Carolina on the evening of primaries in five Northeastern states; Connecticut, Delaware, Rhode Island, New York and Pennsylvania.
Gingrich told his supporters that he was staying in the race “all the way to Tampa,” where the Republican National Convention will be held, so that he could get some key issues into the party platform, including Medicare, Social Security, and independent American energy.
He did not reference the primaries directly, instead using the speech to push some of his key policy ideas.
Newt Gingrich did acknowledge that he will need to consider whether to continue his campaign. “Governor Romney is going to have a very good night,” Gingrich said, going on to say that if Romney becomes the nominee, then every Republican needed to stand behind him.
