Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says he has won the support of a Delaware GOP official who previously had endorsed Mitt Romney.

The Gingrich campaign said Friday that Kent County Republican Party chairman Hans Reigle is switching his support from Romney to Gingrich.

Reigle, a retired Air Force pilot and former mayor of Wyoming, Del., said in a statement that Gingrich is the only candidate who has shown a willingness to meet and talk with Delaware voters for more than hour.

Gingrich has made several campaign stops in Delaware over the past few weeks, with more appearances scheduled before Tuesday's primary.

The only other visit to Delaware by a GOP presidential candidate was a brief stop by Romney last week in Wilmington.
