Gingrich says virtually no chance he'll withdraw
WASHINGTON - March 16, 2012 (WPVI) -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says there's probably no circumstance that would lead him to pull out of the Republican presidential sweepstakes before the party's August nominating convention.
"I'll be with you in Tampa," Gingrich tells CBS's "This Morning" show, when asked about his plans.
The former congressman from Georgia has won primaries in only two states, South Carolina and Georgia. But when asked Friday what conditions could lead him to withdraw from the race, he says, "Probably none."
Gingrich tells the network "I have 176,000 donors at Newt.org. They want me to stay in the race."
He's running well behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum in the delegate chase. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas has won no primaries.
