Newt Gingrich says he isn't dropping out if he loses two upcoming primaries in Alabama and Mississippi.
"Well clearly do well enough to move on and I think theres a fair chance well win," Gingrich said in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday.
Gingrich said he planned to make it all the way to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.
"But I just want to set this to rest once and for all, were going to Tampa," Gingrich added in the interview.
Gingrich's spokesman, R.C. Hammond, had previously said the former House Speaker had to win the upcoming contests in Alabama and Mississippi, taking place on Tuesday, to continue running for president.
Gingrich held the lead in the latest poll of Mississippi. He had 35 percent support to Mitt Romney's 31 percent in an American Research Group poll released Friday.
Gingrich, Romney and Rick Santorum are essentially tied in Alabama. A new Rassmussen poll found the three candidates within 2 points of each other.

that’ll show ‘em, dbag
So even if he loses both contests he will stay in to be a spoiler for Romney?? He has won a total of TWO states..I like Newt as much as anybody but if he isn’t winning but just finishing third he isn’t helping anyone but mitt. GOD help us all if Romney wins because thats four more years of BO!
Yup seen this earlier. His silly detractors can relax since Newt is going to win Alabama and Mississippi. Heehee...
You don’t have to fret since Newt is going to take those two states. :-)
Newt understands and I believe him when he says he's fighting all the way to Tampa.
If nothing else he will give us Grand Drama.
Newt keeps gobbling up delegates while Rick wins hollow victories.
So far, Newt has more delegates than Santorum. If anybody should drop out and stop splitting the vote, it’s Saint Ricky.
I love his fighting spirit. Go all the way Newt.
** President Newt Gingrich-”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”
I thinks its great. Give em hell Newt.
More Santorum delegate problems in Alabama.
Rick should join Newt and bury mitt. This will checkmate the rino controlled republican party also, it’s over johnney
I can’t wait for the book. :)
Well then it’s clear who’s gonna win the nomination.
Santo knows he has delegate problems, but in Mobile AL today he tried to say that all the candidates have the same issue. He really sounded life a buffoon.
Just as long as somone stomps Romney I’m happy! Mr. Howdy Ya’ll I just ate some grits makes my blood boil.......
More problems in DC and Illinois.
Wouldn't that be the perfect answer, a miracle for our country so, we don't have the ruling class guy. I expect all kinds of dirty tactics at convention. Sure am glad that Palin plans on being there.
“He really sounded life a buffoon.”
LOL... he always sounds like a buffoon to me.
