FREDERICK, Md. (AP) â€“Â Newt GingrichÂ said Monday he’s down but not out in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
On the eve of the Maryland primary, the former House speaker told more than 100 supporters at a Ford dealership he’ll stay engaged to ensure that theÂ GOPnational convention produces a conservative platform.
Gingrich said he’ll supportÂ Mitt RomneyÂ if the former Massachusetts governor wins the nomination. But Gingrich said Romney hasn’t won yet, despite his significant lead in delegates over former Pennsylvania Sen.Â Rick Santorum, who is second, and Gingrich.
“Governor Romney doesn’t have it locked down. And we have no obligation to back off and concede anything until he does,” Gingrich said to cheers from the crowd jamming the showroom floor.
Gingrich said last week that Romney probably will reach the 1,144 convention delegates needed to win the nomination. Romney is favored to win Tuesday’s primaries in Maryland, theÂ District of ColumbiaÂ and Wisconsin.
